Fictional Early British 0-6-0

Description
A further attempt at 3D modelling, inspired by M4's British 4-4-0 mod and utilizing some of his modified textures with his permission. A very serious, very major thank you to them for inspiring this mod.

This is a edit of the vanilla Borsig model modified heavily to look more like a cabless British locomotive typical of the 1860's. This 0-6-0 is a fictional design of my own creation, and any likeness to any historic model is purely by accident, but is meant to serve as an early game stand-in for a more British looking locomotive than others that are currently available. A further modification of my original 2-6-2 mod, this engine is slightly shorter, slightly slower, a little less powerful and is introduced slightly earlier. It also uses a moreh istorically accurate wheel arrangement (for those who care about those things) and while I originally made it just to introduce a little more visual variety to my early games, I've found it fills a nice little niche of its own.

Comes complete with aging, tinting, logo support and a reversed version.

Available: 1860-1910
Lifespan: 30 years
Top Speed: 55 kph
Weight: 37T
Power: 160kW
Tractive Effort: 55kN

The great British looking locos fot the early game period. Transport Fever needs more British locos and carriages for the LMS, North Eastern and Southern Regions, they are a bit lacking, compared to the GWR, which has a nice selection. British rolling stock and assets are always welcome. So all you authors who create British stuff. I give a BIG THANK YOU!

@captain403: I've got no immediate plans to add cabs, since from the offset I wanted to do cabless engines. The idea's occure4d to me and I might do it at some point, but I that's a big maybe, and it wouldn't be anytime soon.

Any chance of cabs for this and your 2-6-2? Not really a fan of the cabless style.

@Legdig: Im already working on a couple of smaller engines for the 1850s - there's a 0-4-0 and a 0-4-2 tank I'm working on (and might even downscale for the narrow gauge set), and then I'm planning a couple of passenger carriages as well to finish it off. I'm not a big fan of the single driver style engines, but I might have a go at some point if I finish off the current to-do list. :)

Have you thought about making a 2-2-2 or a 2-4-0 maybe a 4-2-2?
