On a visit to Leadhills Railway 25.06.16 located in a locked container was a small 2' gauge mini tamper I believe supplied by Geismar in 200x. I cannot find this currently listed on the site. Any further information about this would be appreciated.

Could this be the one you saw Lee, it's a French CFG Tamper supplied by Alan Keef Ltd.

Paul, that's the very one. Many thanks for your assistance. Perhaps worthy of adding to the list of preserved small machines.

Just reading the article in more detail it would appear that this is a non-powered mini-tamper. A similar vehicle built to a different gauge is located at Whipsnade Wild Animal Park
