    The British Rail Class 14 is a type of small diesel-hydraulic locomotive built in the mid-1960s. Twenty-six of these 0-6-0 locomotives were ordered in January 1963, to be built at British Railways Swindon railway works. The anticipated work for this class was yard shunting, trip work (between local yards) and short distance freight trains

    The British Rail Class 03 locomotive was, together with the similar Class04, one of British Railways' most successful 0-6-0 diesel-mechanical shunters. 230 were built at Doncaster and Swindon works between 1957 and 1962, and were numbered D2000-D2199 and D2370-D2399 (later 03004 to 03399). D2370 and D2371 were used as departmental locomotives

    Class 03 Cab


    Class 14 Cab:

    [couldn’t find one on the internet]


    These would definitely add more service variety into WSR, the class 03 would be doing shunting at Williton or mine head while the class 14 will be doing passenger services

    If they both get produced in the same deepth of detail as the class 08 then its an instant buy from me.

    After the Class 33, I'll be a tad more careful buying a loco that can only be used on one single route. Although these locos would certainly be interesting, I'm not interested if they can't be used at multiple routes.

    I guess its time for our editor. Is there a feature list what comes with "scenario planner 2.0"?

    You could drive this train on the Main Spessart Bahn too. Ithink, this is a good idea

    The Class 33 is vastly under utilised. This really should be made to work on other routes such as the upcoming BML, ECW and the Kent portion of SEHS. These would have been regular stomping grounds for the class.
