I am going for the L1, despite being designed to deal with the carting of city workers to and from Moorgate they ended their days as freight locos up north somewhere.

 

GNR L1 =LNER R1.

There is an ulterior motive for everything Clive posts, but I couldn't work this one out. Then I looked up the class history, and found that the LNER toyed with the idea of converting them to diesel power.

And the excellent J6 for me too please. Such a crying shame none were preserved. I wonder if a replica might be built one day.

LNER J6 my choice for today, oddly missing RTR.

The two LNER 0-6-0 s that I really think should be RTR are the J6 and the J27.

Played terrible golf, and damaged my back in so doing.

Sorry to hear this. Hope it is not too uncomfortable.

All golfers have their off days I suppose, even those at Augusta. Hope your back is returning to normal. Thanks again for sharing the procession of traffic through Peterborough North - almost like having a time travel webcam in place.

Back a good deal more comfortable today, but I shan't be doing anything which might make it cross again.

 

Poll won very comfortably by the J6, with 11 votes.

 

Today, locomotives of any type designed by H G Ivatt. Not many to choose from, but it will be interesting to see which is thought to be the most successful.

Now most would expect me to say the 1600 hp Co-Co diesels, they were very successful, their primary power unit went on to be used in the class 40s, class 50s, DP2, and the class 56s after various upgrades.

 

Today I will vote for the class 4 2-6-0.

Aren't Oxford Rail proposing introducing a J27?    Sometime.

I thought somebody was. Thanks.
All we need now is the J6.
