    Do you mean for adhesion? Makes sense, but contradicts what was written a year or so ago when a new loco was being speculated about:
    http://rerps.co.uk/new-steam-engine/
    "•2-6-2 wheel arrangement as eight coupled locos don’t have much benefit on the R&ER but they involve more maintenance work"
    I hope that is true, because now you have got a new six coupled loco!

    For adhesion and putting power down. I disagree with a lot of what was in that article to a large extent. The rest is political which I don't do. My interest is in getting Esk going , no more.

    Caledonian blue is a very handsome livery, hopefully it will suit her well. Is there any more news on her overhaul, by the way? Or Esk's, for that matter?

    Still making progress on Esk. It just takes time making everything.
