Even though I run continental N these days and can't justify one, I do think Falcon is a fine looking loco.

You can only vote for one livery option. I voted for option 3 but I'd also buy one in option 4. I know there was only one prototype and I promise not to run both at the same time.  :D

To keep the thread bumping along, here's some drawings of this rather handsome machine:

And here is Falcon under test on the Lickey Incline:



This looks like Bristol TM(?), with Falcon hauling freight:



Finally, for now, this image is dated 1966 and sees Falcon outside Swindon's test facility:

Richard,

if this gets off the ground, you can run as many at one time as you like! ;)

Falcon's service on the WR started right at the end of the period I model but I could squeeze it in alongside Warships and Westerns right at the very end of steam.
Well, that's just not good enough. Some fount of all knowledge you are!  :no:  ;)

I voted for option 4, but would be seriously tempted to also get a version 2.
