Most of An­drew’s col­lec­tion fea­tures lo­co­mo­tives from the pre‑group­ing era, with the sin­gle Fair­lie car­ry­ing SM&AR liv­ery, as it was in the year be­tween it com­ing to Bri­tain and the com­pany be­com­ing the Mid­land & South Western Junc­tion Rail­way Com­pany, on June 23 1884. An­drew also has two lo­co­mo­tives in M&SWJR liv­ery – Beyer Pea­cock 2-4-0T No. 5 of 1882 and Beyer Pea­cock 2-6-0 No. 14 of 1896. An­drew has scratch­built both of these lo­co­mo­tives, apart from the mo­tor and the wheels. Each one took two years to build and he has won awards for both of them from the Gauge O Guild, the Chair­man’s Cup and the Carl­son Tro­phy for Scratch­build­ing.
