QUOTE (34C @ 19 Aug 2008, 12:00) <{POST_SNAPBACK}>The developed version with double Kylchap ejector and Bugatti nose; and further developed as 'next in class built' as was done with the A1 build. It was proposed to link the leading carrying and coupled wheel using the 'Bissel truck' arrangement to ease the track and flange wear problem of the longer coupled wheelbase and that would seem a sensible move. The other enticing prospect would be to go back to poppet valves, but this time using the Caprotti gear as perfected on DoG.

That sounds like a great idea, it also makes for a refreshing change for somebody else to prefer the rebuilt version. I always had the impression that the original was the peoples favourite and thought I was the only person who thought that the rebuilt was a better looking loco.

I also have a soft spot for Bantam Cock, it was a very nicely proportioned locomotive but with there only rver being two of them in the first place this one is not a realistic proposition
