Oh well, another £2.37 for my metal detecting challenge so any finds are welcome.
The engine has been pointed out to me that's its not Thomas but James. Thank you Jordan :)
Jordan got back to me in the comments section saying he now thinks its Victor and not James so I did a bit of googling myself. After about 20 minutes I still wasn't sure as there are a couple of different red engines so I thought I would have a look underneath the engine to see who the manufacturer was and hopefully pinpoint it that way. I turned it over and guess what I saw, in big white capital letters was the name 'VICTOR'.
Sorry about that Jordan, its me that should say sorry to you for messing you around. But I appreciate your effort to ID it which you did get right.... You may slap me with a large wet fish :)
