    I'm not really sure where this is leading. The control issues to manage a steam locomotive boiler were really such that, with the technology available sixty or seventy years ago, you really needed one person per boiler - you couldn't easily have...

  2. Jamessquared liked Western Venturer's post in the thread 35018 British India Line.

    Of course its the perogative of the owner to paint his or her loco in what ever livery they choose,I doubt antbody disagrees with that but isnt it also ok for other people to have a view on things? As has been said you can talk about it until...

    But even a front sheet is more than fire fly & iron juke. There is nothing representing roughly 1850-1900 that would have been considered normal mainline GWR format period, yet people seem to want to fill in every class running in 1948.

    I don't know, I'd certainly say the North British Railway C Class ( reclassified as J36 under LNER ) had much nicer proportions for a tender engine. And as the class were the last working members of British Railways steam in Scotland, 50 years...

    The 01 looks amazing, interesting that it is three 0-6-0 tender locos (564, 828 being the others) that are currently carrying (in my opinion) the nicest liveries of any operational locos!

    [IMG] The 01 at SP by John Sandys, on Flickr (Not my photo...) Model Railway weekend this weekend, which seems a perfect opportunity to see her up close and personal. 541, 263, 323 and 3 are the rostered service locos. Tom

  8. Jamessquared replied to the thread Project Wareham.

    It's hardly a massive walk from Norden to Corfe, even with children, and quite a pleasant one as well. As I recall, there is another, smaller, car park for the village tucked up near the viaduct, but from experience it fills up pretty quickly,...
