The pictures on this page were produced in March 2004 by William Overington as part of a learning experience of using the Serif ImpactPlus package.
The locomotive started as a 2-10-0 style design yet later was converted to a 2-10-2 design. The design needs some additions, such as a connecting rod from the cylinder to the centre large wheel.
Hopefully a scale model of the locomotive will be constructed sometime. Such a scale model would be based on the design in the pictures yet the plans for such a scale model would need to be produced so that the locomotive wheels have flanges and so that there is a connecting rod from the cylinder to the centre large wheel. The design came as a result of trying out the technique of alignment of objects in the three-dimensional scene environment of the ImpactPlus program and just gradually developed, it was not intended to be a precision locomotive design. However, some features such as the copper on the chimney, Swindon-style, as used for 92220 Evening Star would hopefully go through to a scale model for a model railway. The locomotive could be thought of as having three cylinders and inside valve gear.
