"LBSC" was the pen-name of one of model engineering's most prolific writers. Lillian "Curly" Lawrence was born in 1882 and died in 1967.
Ayesha (The name Ayesha comes from a character in "She", a novel by H. Rider Haggard) is one of the more famous model locomotives by LBSC and was used in a challenge to prove that the 2 1/2" scale Live Steam Locomotives where capable of pulling human passengers. LBSC designed a boiler for his model and set out to prove the point.
