LNWR 'Crewe-Type' 2-2-2

Description
I have been working on this one for a little while, with trying to fill a niche in early passenger/mixed traffic design, and also a much needed addition to British engines in general as these small 2-2-2s were common on GJR and LNWR metals until the early 1900s.

Based off of GJR/LNWR No.1868 Columbine, this engine is an example of the 'Crewe Type' of outside cylindered 2-2-2s built at Crewe works from 1845, designed by Alexander Allan. This model is available from game start and balances to be a vehicle with a good turn of speed however weak on power and tractive effort. JKs GWR 2-2-2s are still a better choice for starting out on short passenger and freight services but these vehicles should be able to deal with the intercity routes.

I have also included another LNWR mod I have made, the 'Lady of the Lake' 2-2-2 of 1859. It isn't as 'high-detail' as the 'Crewe Type' but it serves its function in stepping up passenger services toward the 1860s. Both of these classes stayed in service until the turn of the century.

Liveried in the LNWR 'Lined Passenger Black', its not strictly chronologically accurate as of introduction, however it matches with the other LNWR stock (if someone wants to re-paint it to GJR or LNWR Green feel free to do so).

--UPDATE--
I have added assets and a custom soundset

Mod includes:

Available: 1848 - 1902

Weight 77t makes 'Lady of the Lake' unprofitable. Maybe 47t?

Fantastic work, sir! You can catch this and other of your early LNWR locos in my Great Map Tour. Thank you!

This is hands down the best locomotive in the 1850 start, especially freight. Loved it!

I do not think the GWR is better or more powerfull then the Crewe Type 2-2-2. The GWR only has 80kw power and 20 or 25 tracktive effort. It is a little cheaper though. ;)

@navarrofuen98 I had no idea these locomotives were exported! If you want to give it a go feel free.

And now to embarrass myself with rusty GCSE Spanish:

No idea los locomotive venden espana. Intento verde pintar por favor es muy interesant. Espanol no esea bien y Google Translate es no esta bien.

Sería genial que alguien pudiera pintar la locomotora tipo Crewe de verde. Es prácticamnte idéntica a la Mataró!
