I suspect this may be obfuscation.

I’ll vote for Maunsell’s schools class. I’m particularly fond of these as probably the pinnacle fo 4-4-0 engines in the UK and because I work on restoring one (Stowe) when Covid doesn’t stop me.

I’ve decided to vote for the Schools 4-4-0 too, a very nice class of engine, and so very powerful too.

G'Day Folks

 

I'm going to vote for those cute little Beattie  2-4-0WT's, the ones that survived down in Cornwall for so many years after all there sisters were scrapped.

 

My late Father-in-Law worked in Eastleigh works for many years, he told me during the war, he worked on Landing craft at Eastleigh works.

My knowledge of LNER coaches is poor but I always enjoy these views.

Surely the Beattie Well Tanks - and other Beattie locos - were built by contractors or at the LSWR's "Nine Elms" works. Easleigh wasn't established as  C&W works till 1891. No locos were built at Eastleigh till 1910 under Dugald Drummond - some of the first being M7 0-4-4Ts. So Adams reign was still at Nine Elms and came between Beattie and Drummond.

 

Sorry to be picky.

I believe the well tanks were built by Beyer Peacock.

I love the rake of coaches Gilbert. It’s difficult to tell which are RTR and which are kits such is the quality of both. I presume the three blood and custard Thompsons are the RTRs...but only because I know Bachmann make these.

The T9s were modified by Urie (presumably at Eastleigh) between 1922 and 1929, but originally built either by contractors or at Nine Elms...

Indeed, Dübs of Glasgow being the contractor.

 

After 1903, the North British Locomotive Company.

Well, that poll gave hours of innocent amusement, didn't it? After spending some time ruling suggestions in or out for various reasons, we had a tie between  Rebuilt MNs and S15s, with 3 votes each. I think that's right, anyway. Many thanks to our more knowledgeable contributors who steered us in the correct direction.

 

What to do today?  Having had our knowledge enhanced somewhat, we'll stay down south, and go for locomotives designed and/or built at Brighton. No bubble cars Clive.
