100 HP Sentinel Locos (Fry's Type)

I've been asked for information about the Fry's Sentinel loco which was rescued and returned to its original home area in 2010. Avon Valley Railway are doing the restoration work.

As a late addendum to '100HP Pre-war Sentinel Locos' posted in 2011, the following pictures are taken from the 1931 Sentinel catalogue '"Sentinel" Patent Locomotives'. It includes the following details of the Fry's loco type (Click the pictures to enlarge):

Old catalogues do come in handy sometimes!

  2. I have now but was aware of it earlier through the Sentinel Drivers' Club and meeting Eric Miles himself.
