  2. Paul42 liked Cartman's post in the thread 2999: Lady of Legend.

    My take on the GWR and Churchward is that they took such a massive leap forward in the early 1900s that they were head and shoulders above every other railway's locos at the time. They realised that this basic design was good enough for the rest...
