cover illustration
From 'The Cornwall Minerals Railway’s 0-6-0Ts' : An official works photograph of the first of the class, CMR No. 1 Treffrey, Sharp, Stewart Works No. 2350 of 1873, which shows the class as built. The name Treffrey refers to but mis-spells the family name of the originator of the tramways which formed the basis of the CMR, Joseph Austen Treffry. Three others were named but the names did not survive rebuilding by the GWR. The locomotive is shown without a numberplate and it may well be that the named engines worked without numbers in CMR days. The lack of rear bunker and open cab was intended to facilitate back-to back working.
