    Have you actually any experience of the loco? It will provide an exciting journey for the keen loco enthusiast and be capable of the demands made of it on this steep railway.

    An M7 really would be something different along there...

    Good to see it back out. The crest is a new addition since last in traffic I believe.

    I assume on the smoke box the red circle will be painted in time?

    the light on the front should be red too so the colour is actually an authentic one as it would have been built.

    The livery is not authentic, it shouldn’t have the crest. That was reserved for express engines, Hall Class and above

    It’s not the first time, they have previously done it with the Manor and the 2-8-0 Tank. At least they gave the given this one a stupid name

    I like it how they do the colours it looks traditional. but not all of the names. I like Goliath as a name for one but Lydian manor doesn’t mean anything
