Peckett 0-4-0ST No. 1756 Hornpipe
Quainton's Second Peckett
For quite a long time Quainton was without a Peckett tank. And then, in September 1971 Mick Hatton's unique little engine, maker's No. 1900, arrived from Grimsby to correct the omission but not entirely so. Because Jill is very non-standard. It is therefore good to welcome a second Peckett which has been purchased by Mr G Bradbury. This is a more conventional product of the Bristol firm's works and was built in 1928, Maker's No. 1756. It carries the name Hornpipe and was brought to Quainton on 8th August from APCM's works at Holborough, Snodland, Kent, which, you may recall was the home of the famous Aveling & Porter engine Blue Circle now on the Bluebell Railway.
