With more and more railways and groups now considering new builds as the way forward to stocking our railways in the 21st century. If you had the oney to build one for the SVR what would you build?

I know we have 82045 already which I can't wait to see but if it was me it would have to be either a GW Aberdare or a medium sized LNER loco to haul the LNER coach set.

But what do you think?

Very Happy

Yes, and the inariable answer is something huge, with big wheels and multiple cylinders, painted green and with name plates.

Ideal for a single line, 25 mph restricted preserved branch, really!

-A Fowler 2-6-4T, entirely appropriate for the SVR.

-A 77XXX, given the commonality of parts with 82045.

Heres an idea why dont we put the money it costs to do new builds into rebuilding locos that are awaiting overhaul?

In fairness the OP did say " if you had the money....", but you are correct, as far as potential SVR motive power is concerned we dont need look any further than those engines in the Engine House awaiting their call to Bridgnorth.

I think a D63XX would be ideal for the Valley. 1100hp on five or six coaches would be just right! Wink

Tuesday 4th May

Bridgnorth

EN1: 7802 + 6 coaches

Bewdley

ES1: 5164 + 7 coaches
Swap with 43106 at BH 15:10


Wednesday 5th May

Bridgnorth

EN1: 7802 + 6 coaches


Traffic dept sometimes do 6 coaches.

Interesting to see from SVR News that Chris Thomas is looking at matching train lengths more closely to custom

And a D63XX would be lovely!

Let's agree on "very very occasionally" but rarely on a "when needed" basis.

Big Bertha? Great Bear? Neither very practical though. How about a SR/Bulleid Leader? That would be different, if nothing else.

Diesel wise : "Baby" Deltic?

Elsewhere, I can't wait to see the L&B styled Lyd running.
