Interesting list of 'Southern' engines!

The problem I think is that most of those are white metal kits, some of which were quite poor, and the availability of suitable chassis is of the 'hen's teeth' variety for some of them...

Also if you're modelling the Southern post-1962, which is what I'd like to do, most of the pre-grouping and early SR classes were withdrawn at the end of the year - including the Schools and M7s.

You could add the GWR 57XX panniers to the list while you're at it (ECS from Waterloo) by the way...

And dont forget

SR USA tanks (Finelines kit, plus 3D print)

LMS Fairburn 2-6-4Ts around the Brighton line and ECS from Waterloo. Ivatt 2MTs replacing M7s on branch duties.
GW Manors Granges Halls and hopefully Moguls down to Southampton via Reading or the old GW line to Winchester, 61xx prairies as far as Basingstoke

BR Britannias on Golden Arrow (early crest) and 9Fs on Fawley oil trains 1962-63 including six shedded at Eastleigh.

...Manors and Collett Moguls were definitely on the North Downs line and you could include BR 9Fs on Fawley oil trains coming off the Didcot, Newbury and Southampton line...

Football specials and Railtours don't count - so that rules out the Gresley Pacifics!

Just remembered - the V2s ran on the Southern when the Merchant Navys were withdrawn for a while in 1953 after the Crewkerne incident, so they're in!  :thumbsup:
