Cock O The North 4 8 0

If Mr Gresley had followed Mr Chapelon with a 4-8-0 with 6ft drivers for Scotland, I wonder if it might have fared better than the 2-8-2's?
And before someone criticises the firebox - how come Chapelon could do it sccessfully with his Pacific to 4-8-0 rebuilds??

    It might not have had as mutch power, but its grip would be improved due to the firebox pushing down on the last two driveing wheels insted of the trailing bogie.
