    I enjoyed building the little loco so on completion I looked around for another similar engine.
    Some years ago, a construction series in 'Engineering in Miniature' described a 7 1/4 gauge loco 'KOPPEL' designed by Ken Swan.
    I have looked at that series numerous times, but decided that it was too big.

    So, I scaled the Side View drawing down, on the scanner, to a size that would fit 45mm track then built this loco.
