Description
The 'Crampton' locomotive was designed by Thomas Crampton, in a mission to prove standard gauge locos could be just as fast as their rivals on the GWR 'Broad Gauge'. His idea was to have an exceedingly long boiler, low slung and with huge 8ft driving wheels set behind the firebox. These engines could hit 60mph with ease on short express trains on flat ground. However, like all single drivers, it has problems. Its traction surface was very low and the weight over the driving wheel was lacking, even if they were VERY powerful. These locomotives hung on regardless due to their turn of speed, some until 1902.

Includes Crampton 4-2-0 and 4 Wheeled Express Passenger carriage, both capable of 60 mph, avaliable in 1852 and 1853 respectively.

I have yet to get around to mastering logos. I can't seem to align them with the assets properly, its about a 50/50 hit/miss rate with getting them correct. This is a new tender model and sadly, I couldn't seem to get them to 'attach' to the new model. I would very much like to fix this as I plan to use the tender model in a few more of my mods in retrospect.

All my mods costs are set by the game.

Brilliant little loco, stunning to watch that big wheel in motion. I have discovered a little bug, however. Company logos on the tender hover in thin air a few milimetres away from the actual tender, and the small versions of the logo seem to be inside the wheel arch of the big wheel, and poke their heads out the top.
For reference, the logo i was using was the LMS one from a mod, however the same thing happens with the 3 included with the game!

And finally, a question - are the running costs/purchase price etc set by the game?

Great train :) Only issue I've seen so far is that the driving rods are detached at certain speeds although I've seen that issue on some of the default trains too, like the Atlantic.

Dude, never stop making these. I love them. I haven't had the chance to use these early steamers in a savegame yet, but I assume the really fast ones are more expensive than the others?
