GWR Large Prairies: BR in colour

And we are back!
After a very nice summer break we've been busy with the BR versions of the Large Prairies and are happy to show these today in their "clean" versions. Not spotless ex-works but the every day look of a cared for engine in service.

We start with the 5100, shown here with the short lived "British Railways" text which was used from 1948 and before the creation of the first of the Lion emblems in 1949.

Note: As with the GWR engines, the logos and liveries are available on all 4 classes of large prairie as they were worn.

Next we have the 5101 with the curved frames and displaying the 1949-56 Lion on Wheel crest.

The 'Tanner One-er', or 6100 class as it was officially known, is next. Shown in the later post 1956 Lion and Wheel totem.

And finally the 8100 with it's peculiarly small rear truck wheels.

Every member of all 4 classes are included with appropriate settings for all 3 eras as default. You can also edit the loco number in the scenario editor to change any of the following...

Loco number - any 4 digits

Shed Code - any 2 digits and a letter (A to H, J to L)

Bunker steps - these were added to most engines by BR in the early 1950's

Number plate colour - some of these were painted red in the early days of BR and are often shown this way in preservation

Safety Bonnet - can be shown painted (default) or polished, as frequently seen in preservation

Chimney Cap - as the bonnet, painted or polished

So that covers everything BR and clean for the Large Prairies. Next time we head to the latter years of BR and throw a lot of dirt and rust about the place - overalls are recommended ;-)
