The GWR 2800 class was designed for heavy freight use and was the first 2-8-0 wheel arrangement design in the UK. 84 were built. It proved to be a very sucessfully design, capable of hauling far more than its original specification. When the first locomotive was withdrawn in 1958, after 55 years service, it had travelled 1,319,831 miles. 6 have been preserved.

The GWR 2884 class was a refinement of the 2800 class and used for heavy freight trains. 83 were built. The main differences were a more enclosed cab with side windows and the addition of outside steam pipes from the smokebox. 9 were preserved.

The GWR 2884 class in British Railways livery. The 2884 was popular with crews and the BR Western Region management requested more be built, but the more powerful BR Standard Class 9Fs were provided instead. Many remained in service until the end of steam in 1965.

Supports user colours (except BR version), but no aging or user logo.

Update: The models are now available as placeable scenery Assets.

@JK. Thank you for the updates, without a doubt the best series of GWR loco's in the game, couldn't play without these. Brilliant.

What beautifully created locomotives this series are of the GWR. The detail is amazing IMO.

Why no again? I like my engines with a bit of age after they've been on the line... it gives 'em character.

@Captain Jupiter: Another fan of the N&W J-611!! Ever seen it in person? I lived in Roanoke for 3 years. The VA Museam of Transportation was my favorite place to spend a evening!!

I wondering if you can make Norfolk & Western J Class 611?

if only killakanz (author of class 47) would do this on his MK1 coaches, i`m quite late into the game now and started in 1910, using your locomotives as the trains until the 60`s when Killakanz`s models were introduced

@LONDONMIDLANDZZ - Yeah I've added lamps to most of the previous mods, since creating them for the 3700. It looks like the 2-8-0 of the S&DJR was of a different origin and design to the GWR.
@Rhodry1918 - I don't currently plan to make them available as placeable track and ground objects.

I'm really impressed with your work JK. I'm not really a GWR fan, however I am really intrigued with your mods. I wish you the best of luck in the future with your mods.
