    Definitely! I really like the Kestrel!
    I think of Kestrel as a more round and more yellow Class 47. Don't you think it looks a bit like that too?

    I just think it was an iconic loco and in my opinion would fit in well with TS18. Also another suggestion could be D280 Falcon.

    How about having them all together in an esoteric Diesel prototypes bundle to spread the development costs? The list would only get longer though. DP2. The Fell Diesel (which had six engines). The LMS twins. Bullied's 1C0-C01s...

    All of those would be SOOO great to see in TS!!!!
    805 BENBOW Maybe you should create a poll, if people would like to see those in TS! If there's enough votes, DTG might actually do it!

    So, practically a prototype diesel locomotive bundle featuring:
    BR 18000 Gas Turbine
    D0226/D0227
    D0260
    D0280/BR Class 53
    DP2
    and HS4000

    Would seem like a good bundle.

    Yes but, on second thoughts, probably an expensive one. There wouldn't be much common ground between such different loco's so a bundle wouldn't so much "spread development costs" as lump them all together. As predicted the list got longer- I did think of 18000 (and 18100) but stuck to Diesels.

    The Western Gas Turbine loco's are interesting especially 18100 which was a prototype twice being converted to 25KV AC for test work on the WCML. There's a photo' of her on the line to Stockton with electrical equipment on her roof but apparently running under her own power. They would make a good bundle but I wish I knew more about them.
