    Hopefully...
    The W class? I can't think of any others...

    Bingo. That's the one.

    The W Class is integral to modeling south London rail traffic. Norwood Junction Shed homed several of these tanks and they performed excellently on transfer goods and secondary services.

    Personally I like them because they are a direct descendant of the SECR K Class (just with smaller wheels) and they never got a chance after the Sevenoaks Incident. In a way, it's like giving the Ks a second chance to prove themselves - a chance they lived up to!

    I agree, they're lovely looking locos - much as the K class were. A pity none of either class were saved for preservation, although it is of some solace to know that 31806 is still with us.

    Now there's a locomotive that looks like it could do a job of work. (Picture courtesy of Wikipedia)

    Narcolepsy is not napping.

    Presently working on something a little different. This is a Foden geared locomotive downloaded from Steve Flander's website. This is quite an old model now and I've been working on updating it with a new sound file and engine spec along with a new cab interior view. The new sound file is based around a recording of a Fowler traction engine and sounds reasonably good considering I don't really know what I'm doing. This little locomotive seems to like working best with the 'advanced' steam controls which makes it a lot of fun to drive.

    Not sure if this is the place to put this, but I did find this to be rather unusual. Not sure if it's supposed to happen

    it shouldn't do that if you use the loco coal version of the wagon as seen on the tip itself

    Right you are Annie! They were very hardworking locos and performed flawlessly at moderate speeds. Unfortunately they never seemed to iron out that wobbly curve jumping at high speeds, so they never got the chance to work the suburban circular workings. Such a shame!

    I'm very interested in this little newcomer you are working on Annie! Reminds me of some of the 36in Diesel Railcars we have in the US Mountains. "Galloping Goose" was what I think they were called.



    One little update before bed. After dawdling around in Merstham for a month I have finally found the information I needed to continue onward to North Coulsdon! I'm very happy with how the twin tunnels turned out as well.

    They went from this:

    To this:

    It's pretty amazing how Trainz lets you cover so much ground in such a short time. I really love this game!!

    Also, a few from the route to North Coulsdon. The track for the main line and the yards has been laid and the fantastic signal box is once again thanks to the talents of building wizard Paul of Paulz Trainz! Hoping to make it to Croydon by the end of the month - fingers crossed!

    Some great shots from you all; my humble contribution. Afraid we're still on diesels, I do run steam - promise!

    Class 08 seen on a ballast working at Motala:

    Crossing the level crossing at Norden:


    Shunting stock into the siding. This used to be the old road/rail interchange until the new one was built the other side of the crossing:

    And what a wonderful steam engine to start us off with! I never tire of seeing that U Class!!

    It's funny how we started a conversation about the Ks and Ws and then it segway into the most successor of the K Class family tree! The Southern Railway really does have an amazing history.
