Gresley V2. Words fail me as to why; it just _is_ the most beautiful steam locomotive I have ever seen.

Their engines would have become more efficient
Gresley was not afraid to learn lessons from anyone. Having previously had inconclusive evidence of the benefits of long travel valves, a trial between a GWR (castle I think) and of his early pacifics in the 20's led to a rethink. This led to the A3s, A4s and finally V2s.

Good choice; of course Gresley was a successor to Stirling

Which livery? BR Blue was most unflattering; IMHO of course.

It looks like something out of "Chitty Chitty Bang Bang".
