Thank you! The strategy with vehicles has always been to produce a coherent set, so I started with a comprehensive set of locomotives for two of the most important railway companies (the LNWR and MR), which were both antecedents of the LMS, which I also gave a full range; having a full range of at least one company's vehicles should allow the player to use a reasonable range of rolling stock for a wide variety of purposes, especially with major companies. There was also the LBSCR, and, more recently, the L&TSR as well, of course, as the Metropolitan and District Railways. Having done those, I thought it as well to give a good range to another one of the major railway companies, the GNR, although at this stage to save time, concentrating only on long-distance passenger and mail locomotives and rolling stock. The next in the list is the LSWR (for which I have graphics for a full range of rolling stock already, but am very limited in locomotives so far) followed by the venerable GWR. The GER I should like to do one day, but, aside from the varieties of the Claud Hamilton and re-purposing of the clerestory carriages, as above, that will have to wait for the time being.
Continuing with the GNR theme, here is the GNR Stirling 7ft single 2-2-2, hauling some GNR 4 wheeled carriages:
This locomotive (also known as the B class) was built from 1868, and was the forerunner to the more well known 8ft single of 1870.
Meanwhile, here is the GNR G2 class (a slightly later development of the 8ft Stirling Single 4-4-2) with some Howlden bogie carriages:
Not pictured is the GNR G1, which shares the graphics with the G2 so similar in appearance were they. The G, G1 and G2 represent three different stages in the development of Patrick Stirling's most famous locomotive
, which was built from 1870 to 1895, and was refined a number of times during that period.
Here is the GNR Q Class 2-2-2 locomotive with a rake of Howlden designed bogie lavatory carriages and mail carriages (including a TPO):
This locomotive was built from 1886, and therefore overlapped considerably in production with the G series of 4-2-2 locomotives for which Stirling is most famous; by all accounts, these seem to have been slightly superior engines, which is reflected in the power and top speed data, but they are also slightly more expensive.
The development of the 4-2-2 was continued by Ivatt after Stirling left office in 1895, resulting in this G3 class of 1900, seen here hauling some GNR clerestory corridor carriages, including some mail carriages and a TPO:
Those clerestory carriages came in both 8 and 12 wheel versions. Below are some of the more luxurious 12 wheelers behind the GNR C2 "Klondyke" class 4-4-2 "Atlantic" locomotive, which is already in earlier versions of the pakset, but which I have re-scaled and improved the graphics generally.
The 12 wheel carriages have a higher comfort rating and capacity than the 8 wheelers, but are more costly and have a higher rolling resistance per unit of weight.
In the later GNR period, Gresley produced the elliptical roof carriages that were the direct forerunners of his carriages for the LNER. Here, being hauled by GNR C1 class 4-4-2 "Atlantic" (already in the pakset, but rescaled and improved here) are a selection of these carriages, including a 12 wheeled dining car and TPO:
In terms of secondary passenger locomotives, here is the GNR E1 class 2-4-0 of 1897 hauling a mix of Howlden 6-wheelers and bogie lavatory carriages:
The E1 class is a direct descendant of the H class (see above). Not pictured is the intermediate H2 class, which was visually indistinguishable from the H class, but with some refinements, which are reflected in the pakset data (including giving the H2 but not the H data to represent being fitted with continuous brakes).
The GNR also produced some 4-4-0s, but not, unlike other railways, for express use, but for secondary passenger use. Here is a GNR 1321 class 4-4-0 of 1898 hauling a short rake of mail carriages:
Not pictured is the GNR D2 class of 1896, which shares the graphics with the 1321 class and over which the 1321 class is a small improvement.
Finally, here is the GNR D1 class 4-4-0 of 1911 with some Gresley designed elliptical roof non-corridor lavatory bogie carriages of 1908:
