    They look great! I guess there'd be an issue with the coupling (obviously not UK standard), but even so a fun addition to a UK 3' gauge layout if it were to be uploaded.

    Those NGG16's are 2ft Gauge though and the chopper couplings are standard couplings on Ffestiniog and Welsh Highland, Welsh Highland Heritage Railway, Vale of Rheidol, Lynton and Barnstaple, Leek and Manifold and the only 3ft lines being the Isle of Man and Ireland and a short peat line that recently being revived in the UK.

    Most UK Narrow Gauge lines had a centre coupling of various kinds and no buffers, exception being the the Talyllyn and the revamped Corris and wagons used internally in quarries and such, just a hook and chain affair with wooden dumb buffers.

    With Narrow Gauge there isn't really any historical standard for couplings in the UK.

    Reskins look good!

    Thank you all for the kind words.
    Fictional loks for my fictional 2ft gauge route somewhere in the West Country.
    I'll ask Ed for permission to upload them to the DLS.


    Cheers, Ken

    Fictional or not, it really looks the business.

    Thanks Malc, I'm pleased to get this wrong! In which case, these will be a great addition for UK 2' gauge layouts. I'm pleased Ken's uploading them.

    I seriously can't wait for this to hit the DLS Ken. A BR Garratt would be perfect running on the 2ft lines in Dearnby and District! Thank you and thank Ed for allowing this reskin!

    Slowly getting back into Trainz still. Decided on working the Ulfsweir Route I started to get me back in the rythym of route building again. Mostly adding more pre-grouping scenery but running some locos and rolling stock too.

    I also decided to line every roadway with an invisible spline to accomodate Graham's fantastic Steam Traction Engines that he put on the DLS. I may do the same to the lake to allow for boat traffic too.. Time will have to tell, I guess!

    So grabbed a 1st class ticket and downloaded all the new SBS buildings as they're just what I'm looking for on Glen Brae. Which of course got me back into Trainz. Picking up where I left off so here's some WIP shots;

    Say, where did you get that GER D81?

    #5788. Off for a spot of trip working by the look of it Tailight.

    #5785. That GER D81 caught my eye as well Tanker. It's outside my modelling time period, but a new GER engine is still going to catch my interest. Nice to see you blowing the dust off the Ulfsweir Route again.

    #5786. Glen Brae is looking good Jimmy. Masontaylor's new buildings are really something else and I'll be taking a closer look at them myself for my rebuilt version of 'Cairnrigg to Balessie'.

    #5784. Whenever I see pictures of that amazing layout of yours PLP I wish I could be shrunk down smaller so I could walk about and explore it.

    I knew you were going to be the one to notice it Annie! It's an excellent loco I picked up from a guy who I follow on discord. I don't know if you remember me posting those Furness G5 0-6-0T pictures a while back, but that was one of his works too. It only comes in GER Black but I hope he decides to do LNER and BR Black one day!

    I do have a rather deep fondness for the D81 - or J20 depending on your preference - as it's an incrediblely interesting 0-6-0 locomotive. Before the dawn of the famous Bulleid Q1, the D81 held the title of being the strongest 0-6-0 in Britain followed closely by the LBSCR C2x Class. With the 180psi boilers of the Holden B12s and a total Tractive Effort of 29,044 lbf (129.19 kN), these locos were capable of incredible freight haulage while remaining within the confines of the GERs loading gauge. Honestly, the SECR and MR should have taken some pointers from this remarkable design! The J16 and J17 - locos that do exsist within your time period I believe - were actually used as testbeds to push the utilitarian function of the GER's 0-6-0s to its absolute limit, resulting in the greatest GER six coupled goods engine of them all.

    Ulfsweir will undoubtedly be worked on more in the future as it's small size and variety of things I can do with it provides a creative outlet when working on the South London Route just makes me want to scream. I will never have the level of wonder and amazement that your GER layouts have, but it's enjoyable for me and I think that is enough.
