    European Inside Cylindered 4-4-0

    created by MGDawson on 2012.12.28

    Main Section
    Updated 05/10

    Although based mainly on the LMS 2P (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/LMS_Class_2P_4-4-0), this loco is designed to be generic enough to represent both British and early Continental 4-4-0s (American locos are always have outside cylinders).

    Represented in 141 - "Earth Green", imitating GWR colours, 154 - "Dark New Red", imitating LMS Vermillion/Crimson Lake, or 23 - "Blue" - representing Caledonian (or "Thomas And Friends" Edward) The other colours used in the project are 199 (Dark Stone Grey), 1 (White, for the lamps) and 24 (Bright Yellow, used for the whistle and Safety Valves). Translucent white and red are used for the lamp jewels.

    Features;
    > Open Frame construction, with representation of some of the valve gear linkage on the powered axle
    > 2 tender top constructions (swappable for motorisation) with the coal space not being built into the sides and is completely removable.
    > Motorisable with Power Functions (receiver in tender, loco bogie being a PF motor; battery box would have to be mounted in a trailing vehicle) or by using a 9V motor (which is what is represented here)
    > Full provisioning of lamp holders (in the standard 1 top/3 footplate arrangement) for different train classes
    > representation of cab controls (2 pressure gauges, 2 levers and 1 wheel), which can be removed for Power Function integration.
    > Handrails on tender and boiler
    > Basic construction; no advanced techniques here making it suitable for all ages*

    Parts wise, the LDD model registers as 326 parts, which can be broken down even further;
    > 9 for the lamps
    > 19 for the alternate tender configurations
    > 3 for straight track pieces.

    *all ages used. Please be aware of the choking hazard.

    The loco in no. 23 - "Light Blue". I put it in this colour as somebody said it looked similar to Edward from Thomas & Friends.
