Irish Ford railcar(Derwent Valley Railway type)
Ford chassis with body built by C.H.Roe of Crossgates (Leeds). Operated 1924-1926 when road bus competition saw them sold to County Donegal Railways.
They were modified by County Donegal(body lowered), to fit 3ft gauge, but were not uccessful and were scapped in the mid 30s.
Colonel Stephens wanted to buy them, but was outbid by the County Donegal.
The design would have be useful on Irish 5ft 3in gauge, as some earlier Ford types were used.
