I don't like the look of the W1 either but it was a prototype and a lot the shape is governed by the boiler.
For looks, the V2 with internal steam passages to the cylinders is my favourite.

From memory; the 'all filled in' code (i.e. smokebox + 3 on buffer beam) was reserved for the royal train, however I am struggling to find a source for that one for some reason....
I have the same memory but Google didn't turn anything up. I must have read it in a book back in the days before t'Internet ;)
