Thanks Peter - great post - interesting indeed.

Wonder if it is connected to this being announced :

The CAD looks good - but still need to see it in the flesh personally after the recent GWR loco debacles from both Hornby and Bachmann...

Would like to replace my 25 year old tender driven job - with a proper 'late' King with double-chimney....
