In 1888 the GWR built 99 Small cattle waggons to the W3 diagram. Some were used into the late 1940s.
From 1902 to 1911 nearly 600 Large cattle waggons were made by the GWR to the W5 diagram. Later more than 250 W1 waggons were fitted with vacuum brakes and also became W5's. Some were still used into the 1960s, whilst others were converted to carry beer barrels and a few for use inspecting tunnels.

Sizes for cattle waggons on UK railways were standised towards the end of the 19th century, the resulting 'Small' size was 13ft long, the resulting 'Large' size was 18ft long.

Only the British versions supports custom colours. No aging or user logo.

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

Isn't it time for a 'Hall' 4-6-0? Probably the most useful loco in the GWR's final years.

HI JK, just wanted to say thanks for creating and sharing so many GWR mods. I have most of your workshop in my game. :steamhappy::2016trophy:

would you make a 2 8 2 o the north?

There was some standard gauge in the early days of GWR. There's a small possiblity of me doing a 69 Class 2-2-2 from 1856 (as 1850 in game), but not in the foreseeable future. It's also hard to know what is should look like as they were later rebuilt and there wasn't really photography that early. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Daniel_Gooch_standard_gauge_locomotives#69_Class

We definatly need some earlier British trains in the game; I always start at 1850. The problem for JK is that in that in that era the GWR used the broad guage tracks (7'-!/4'' or 2140mm) that are incompatable with TF.
The rocket is too early and too crude for TF (1832), locomotives developed quickly after that time. It needs something from around 1850, perhaps a LNWR 'Large Bloomer'?

Play exclusively with all your work on my scale regional maps of West Wales (trying to re-build former railway lines now closed).

What are the chances of you working on George Stephenson's “Rocket” in the future? Would be great to have a very early British train for 1850 play.

Again, thank you so much for all your work - keep it up!

Really appreciate the work you do bringing us British trains to use in this game. Thank you!

See if you can do LMS equipment as well

Thanks guys. Yes, I have the Castle on the list and the Hall is potientially a possiblity. I'm hoping to do a 4000 Star class by Christmas, and maybe some other bits & bobs before then.
