Our reason for being interested in Peerless is we have a magnificent old 1910 Peerless which according to its serial number must have done service in the First World War, was repatriated to Britain and then exported to South Africa where it worked in a brickworks in Grahamstown from approximately 1920 up until the early 1950's?

It is the intention of the Sandstone Heritage Trust to restore it back to its military configuration.

March/April's issue of Military Magazine has published a brilliant article on Peerless Trucks during World War 1.

Tim Gosling discusses the great trucks of the Great War Period. It seems that The Peerless was the most common of the 3-ton class of truck used at this time.

With the greatest of thanks to Military Machines International and Ian Young for the permission to use this article.

Sandstone Estates and the Beaulieu Estate - Hampshire Life Magazine

Heritage - News

An interesting article which appeared in the August edition of Hapshire Life magazine.

22nd August 2007

The close relationship between the Beaulieu Estate and the Sandstone Heritage Trust has been well documented, both on our web site and in the press, particularly in the UK. 

To provide further background to the person behind the Beaulieu Light Railway project, namely Ralph Montagu, we attach an interesting article which appeared in the August edition of Hampshire Life magazine. This is a detailed article which deals with Ralph's long-term vision for the Beaulieu Estate but once again the association between Beaulieu and Sandstone is covered, and we quote;

"Travelling the world, visiting countries with working steam, Ralph has struck up a friendship with Wilf Mole, a South African who set up the Sandstone Heritage Trust. Wilf has built his own railway, but owns a lot more narrow gauge locomotives than he can use and he has discussed loaning locomotives to Beaulieu if Ralph is able to build a railway there (hence the current display of the delightful little engine at the Motor Museum from the Sandstone Heritage Trust as a kind of taster)."
