Unsung hero - R. G. Jarvis

Post by 7wheel on Fri Oct 07, 2011 11:13 pm

Why is it that Jarvis is rarely mentioned? His notable successes are the Bulleid rebuilds, the 9Fs and the HST power cars, all of which look and function very well. I think that he has been rather underrated; I was quite shocked when I mentioned his name at the Bluebell 50th to a Bulleid fan in relation to 34059 and the bloke didn't know who I was talking about. The Bulleid rebuilds are incredibly handsome engines, and it's Jarvis who must take the credit for that.
