    My take on proposed British loco content.
    For the Gunzel in us all and for the puritans and pedants.
    I suppose that there would be limited scope for scenarios, that's a given, however, like the published GT3 there is room and I think there will be a fair market for scenarios and for the dlc collectors/poor buggers like me to throw their cash at.
    I know its not for everyone (eyes the stars and bars) but hey old soldiers pensions have to contribute somewhere right?

    Super Deltic, never built.
    A 72-ton Bo-Bo locomotive, using a single 18 cylinder Deltic engine, was proposed as an alternative to what became the British Rail Class 37 Type 3 locomotive introduced from 1960.[40]

    A Co-Co "Super Deltic" was proposed but not built.[41] There were three potential designs between 4000 hp and 4600 hp weighing between 114 and 119 tons with a maximum axle load of 19 long tons (19 t).[42] The locomotives would have looked very similar to the eventual Class 50s, though slightly longer.[43] All three designs would have had two 18-cylinder turbocharged engines, based on the 9-cylinder turbocharged engine used in the British Rail Class 23 "Baby Deltic" and the locomotive would have been designated Class 51. The Class 55's engines were not turbocharged, although they did have centrifugal scavenging blowers.

    Ooooh no..... there is always scope for scenarios.... Any/all of these could be visitors to Doncaster Works (on York-Peterboro, or on "Doncaster Works")..... or on any of the heritage lines as fantasy preserved or partially preserved...... or on some of the historic routes.... or.... well....

    .......someone could make a route that ends at the Barry scrapyard..... ;-O

    I was thinking this is just a list of all British Diesel locomotives that aren't already available in TS (which to be clear I'd be OK with) but there are some missing. Off the top of my head I can think of Lion which was effectively the prototype Brush type 4 (Class 47), Falcon, Kestrel both also made by Brush, DP2 which was a test bed for the engine that powered the Class 50 in the body of a Deltic and the Fell Diesel which proved that just because you can do something doesn't mean you should.
