dwb - The final batch of Fowler 2-6-4Ts had cab windows.

The main differences between a Stanier 2-cylinder tank and a Fairburn are the shortened wheelbase (a Fairburn's wheelbase is 17 inches - I think - shorter) and the cut away drop from the runnng plate to the front end frames (this being cutaway on a Fairburn).

Compare the first Stanier tank, 2500 (now at the NRM:)
