Thanks. I seem to remember seeing a photo of a 4f double heading on the S&D but have forgotten where I saw it.

You're right, Brian. The LMS 4F 0-6-0 tender locomotives worked some trains down from Bath—they were commonplace on the Bath to Bristol services.

Freight in the 1960s was largely in the hands of Fowler 4Fs, Stanier 8Fs, Standard 4-6-0s and the S&D 7F 2-8-0s, assisted by Jinty 0-6-0Ts and GW 57XX Pannier Tanks; freight trains were assisted in rear by these locomotives over the Combe Down summit and over Masbury.

LMS Class 2P 4-4-0s, LMS Fowler Class 3Fs, and, of course, S&DJR 7F 2-8-0s, were all used on the Somerset & Dorset but, not as far as I know, LMS 4Fs but my knowledge of the S&D is far from extensive.
A few 4Fs were built specifically for the S&D and were even numbered into that railay’s own series. So yes,they were sometimes seen South of Bath.
It's you railway so build it as you want and run whatever you like. The only rule is - ENJOY :
