Thanks to Frank Davis we have a Pile Driver on the layout as you can see from the picture below. Not the rail truck to the right of the pile driverbring in wood/fuel. This was built by Mike Aplet.

Like everything else on the layout we draw on historical photos to make our modelling as accurate as possible. Here is a gallery of photos of pile drivers showing the “real thing” at work.
