Might I suggest future comments about CoT are posted there and we'll leave this thread for when Colin announces what his next model will be?


Does Colin post on here ?

What's the largest loco union mills have done in the past?

Wouldn't it be great if they did the coronation class with streamlining   :drool:

Colin doesn't do outside cylinders or valve gear (too fiddly?) and he doesn't do tank engines (pickup strategy).  How about a Turbomotive?

Sticking with the recent GWR models a Dean 2-2-2 would be perfect... :-)

Or how about any of the 6 Drummond 4-4-0s not modelled as yet C8, K10, L11, S11, L12, D15 and the Adams 0-4-2 A12, all except the C8 made it into BR, although the A12 never wore BR livery. If he could go to outside cylinders without outside valve gear there are some Adams 4-4-0s. On the Central and Eastern sections there were lso quite a few 4-4-0s and 0-6-0s.

You want to get Atso @Atso to do a 3D print to go on a Farish chassis

I doubt my painting (lack of) skills would be able to do it justice !!

In all my years spotting at Upperby and Kingmoor I never actually saw one - I have just discovered why, they were all de-streamed by '49 :( a couple of years before I took it up :) good ol' Wiki

Langley made a Streamlined Coronation kit which was very easy to put together on a Minitrix Britannia chassis and Fox do the transfers for blue or crimson  https://fox-transfers.co.uk/transfers/lms-coronation-scot-streamlined-blue-locomotive-livery

Yes but I don't think the bogies were exactly in the right place. I believe it did look a bit nose heavy.

You need to use the N Brass LMS bogie, with its bigger wheels, to give it the correct look.
