    If I`m correct none of the V2 class locomotives were equipped with smoke deflectors (for some reason)

    So, just for fun I thought it could be interesting to see how the appearance would change by using a photo and some time with microsoft paint. :)

    I guess the most are disagree with me but, actually, I like the version with the german style Witte- deflectors;) but also the other one as well.

    Not the Witte type, but what became 60813 was fitted with a type that looked like a shovel fitted around the chimney.

    No thank you Mr Knut, a V2 is best left naked.

    I do like a german smoke-deflector on the Gresley front end.
    Now paint it black with red under the running plate and chuck a few more domes on it...

    Wouldn’t a coal scuttle type one be more appropriate? ;):)

    Pickelhaube?
    The German for tinhat is I think, stahlhelm, but that has connotations from 1920s Wiemar republic chaos
