    I've never seen one of these before. What Class is it?
    Well if that's not testament to the standard of your work! :-) (Vac - the folder's called Alternative History ;) Don't worry, the only reason I knew is cause I was browsing the folder earlier!

    Hi Vac, It's a C3 (the only vacant class number), it would have been a C4 (as opposed to an A4) but that class was allocated to the Great Central Atlantics, but as Lankyphil advises it is an Alternative history - that is born out of my deluded mind!

    NB There actually was a drawing made of a streamlined Ivatt Atlantic C1, but it was never followed up.

    Very reminiscent of the 4-4-2 SNCB Type 12 locomotive.
