    A sort of 1890s version of the "CEO's pet project". ;)

    But in many ways it was an admirable period, a time of engineering curiosity and ingenuity, before the dreary weight of "purely for profit" made itself felt.

    Everyone was experimenting really, as the steam era was full of technological advancement, and then we hit the diesel, a design so basic we have basically little to contribute now in terms of something ingenious.

    I broke down and bought the GCR class 8K during CW's recent sale. It is indeed a fine loco. Here's mine, in GWR Green Livery, climbing out of Kingswear on its maiden voyage:

    Was aiming more for a children's book page. But yeah, came out a bit like a postcard.


    Dagnabit and tarnation! I'm gonna have to go back and fix that.
    EDIT: Fixed. While I was at it, I adjusted the proportions to be a bit better.

    And to finish my kettle challenge week ....... Take everything you know about driving steam locos and then reverse it.
    Welcome to the Mesh Tools LNWR G2.
    20210829221035_1.jpg

    20210829220949_1.jpg

    The reverser & regulator keys are opposite to every other loco on TS
    Talk about a challenge:-
    Key Features
    • Accurate regulator and reverser operation
    • Regulator that can freely move, sometimes even shut itself!
    • Braking can cause the wheels to lock up, and is less effective at higher speeds
    • Realistic Brake fade effect
    • Water level gauge glass simulation
    • Overfilling the boiler can cause carry over
    • Gravity and steam-powered, front and rear, finite sanding
    • Advanced adhesion simulation

    A UK Bank Holiday meant a long weekend with an extra day off work.
    Decided to spend it in an office .......
    20210831125858_1.jpg

    In Advance mode this Mesh Tools 3F 0-6-0 Jinty is incredible. Not for the novice or those that like an out of cab ride, but as a driver challenge, this is up there with the best. Must admit the very detailed manual was accessed at regular intervals, but managed to make it from Stranraer to Newton Stewart without blowing it up.

    I've been messing around on my backdated version of the Bedford Junction Branch as of late and seeing how it looks as a Pennsylvania Railroad line. Here's a few shots of some yard activity at the Bedford Junction Yard and Roundhouse.

    I own the Bulldog. It's a winner for sure! I too took advantage of DT's sale. Here's one of my two purchases, a GWR "Dukedog" on Western Branch Lines (Steam Workshop Route):
    [​IMG]
    My chief gripe with the Dukedog is that whoever made this for DT gave it only the two traditional out-the-front-window cameras. No custom cab 'lean-outs'. That's always a demerit for me. Sometimes a lease-breaker. However, the sales price made it an acceptable buy for me, and lean-outs aside it's quite a nice loco. I captured footage of the drive seen above. Some baffling screwiness occurred near one of the line's stations that might keep me from creating a YT video from it, depending on if I can edit out the screwiness without ruining continuity.

    Totally with you on that one. Ever since I got into steam locos, I think my first was the BMG Royal Scot, I found the 'Lean Out' view the perfect way to drive, but as you say for the price paid for these DT sale dudes, can't really complain too hard, certainly tick the box for stunning eye candy on any route.

    Thank you :)
    Love the Autumn, heat is my enemy and this has the best colors as well. The next month.
    Nice reflections shots. The last one is certainly deserving a Michelangelo award.
