Stephenson's 'Invicta'

This engine came immediately after the Rocket. Like, literally, this was the next engine to leave the Robert Stephenson & Co. works a few months later. The Canterbury and Winstable line actually opened BEFORE the Liverpool and Manchester Railway by four months! However, it was not entirely Loco hauled, and also wasn't a great success.

This loco ran from 1830 to 1837 and wasn't very good, but it was preserved, and thus became the first preserved locomotive in the world.

Available: 1829 (1850 for you lot) until 1870. This is unrealistic but how else you gunna use it.
Speed: 27mph (This is somewhat reasonable for this kind of loco)
Weight: 6t
Power: 40hp
T/E: 6,700lbf
(A slight buff but with 'real' stats it couldn't pull itself in TpF let alone wagons)

You should download my mod because:
1. Its cool and you will feel cool using it
2. Custom sounds
3. Its old
4. Placeable asset (but it's a little off as the way I have designed this mod means it looks a little strange on close inspection.)

I really hope TF2 will add a posibbility for modders too create an mod for an earlier start year. I like it too build a railway from the first years of railways.

Wonderful! thank you. Any plans to do the open passenger wagons?

Finally someone else who knows about that Jowood game.
That game is what got me interested in trains in the first place, and I've made it a hobby to find out what the in-game engines are based off in real life.
Now that I type this, I suddenly get the need to see the NER 1001 class in TpF.

@Grijzepilion thats what the game should start with as first tracked transport then trains should come a few years after that, that's the way Transport Giant did it.

its not a very big picture, but you can see on the top track how 2 horses are pulling a passenger car

GrijzePilion , i total agree with you there.

There has to be a way to mod or hack the game so we can change the date of savegames or force the game to start at an earlier date. I love modelling these old locomotives.

Kinda mad that TF2 (probably) won't allow us to start earlier. Give me 1830, or even 1800. I want to start with horse and cart only, and get the first trains as they're developed.
