I measured the Kohukohu remains as  follows:

Gauge                        3 ft 6 ins

Wheel diameter        2 ft 1.6 in

which differs a little from the figure of 2 ft 3 ins given previously

Wheelbase               4 ft 6 in

Looking at the wheel design I have little doubt that this locomotive is a Kitson similar to T53.

Further information and thoughts will be gladly received!
