De Winton Replica
The first steam loco to visit the Chasewater Railway Narrow Gauge.
Taffy is an 0-4-0VBT VC engine, a reproduction De Winton, 30/1990, built by the Alan Keef Ltd. company in Ross-on-Wye.
The Limited Company was formed in 1975 at Cote, Bampton, Oxon, continuing what Alan Keef had already been doing for some years as an individual. In 1986 the company moved to larger premises at Lea Line, Ross-on-Wye in Herefordshire.
