Netta - (N.E., T-class; what else could I have called her ?) is an ideal job for any locomotive-builder who needs a simply-built, sturdy and efficient engine which packs the maximum of power into the minimum of space. She is the cat's whiskers for the average suburban back-garden, which is usually only long enough to accommodate an up-and-down straight line. The whole of the weight being available for adhesion, the big cylinders, small wheels, and ample boiler power, all combine to give the acceleration needed, to get any pleasure out of what really amounts to a shunting job.
