Well, seeing as Southern stocks have improved lately, what about a K class 2-6-0 in late black BR livery.
They ran the freight on the South Coast line up until withdrawn. My primary School, South Lancing Primary adjoined the line, and we had WC/BB, K, Schools, E6 etc, and utterly brilliant place to be a young trainspotter.
The K class was a solid workhorse, one of Billinton's most successful classes.

Well, I already put in a bid for the ex-LBSCR K class 2-6-0 which was a wonderful workhorse, but I have a few other favourites that would make really nice models....
Surviving until the late 1950's, and 1960, working their iconic local services between Helensburgh and Arrochar & Tarbet were Reid's versatile C15 and C16 classes. A model of these elegant locos would be a nice addition for modellers of the NBR/LNER/BR scene north of the border.

I do like the E4 idea too.
