A similar exercise was carried out on the LMS where the 40 Claughton class locos were 'rebuilt' into Patriot class locos with virtually nothing of the original engine being reused. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/LMS_Patriot_Class

 

This was simply following in the footsteps of the Midland's 483 Class 4-4-0s, purportedly rebuilds of 19th-century engines; I'm amused how often one sees their design attributed to S.W. Johnson!

Only works for locomotives with numberplates - the Railway Series engines have tank or tender-side transfer numbers a la late Midland/early LMS.

I think you can over analyse things. The sad case of Henry being one of them!

Only just noticed this thread - good news for me as I am trying to collect them all for the kids. Managed to get the end of line Thomas, Percy, Edward, Annie & Clarabel and some other coaches but scoffing at the prices some want for the others.
