GWR 4-6-0 4000 'Star' class. Designed for heavy express passenger trains, 73 were built between 1906 and 1923. Following various experiements with 3 French engines, the design incorporated some of the best technology from the French designs. The four cyclinder, 4-6-0 design was so sucessful it became the basis for all subsequent GWR heavy passenger engines and the pacific (4-6-2) design, popular with other railways, was never embraced by the GWR, with only one prototype ever being built. The last Star was withdrawn in 1957 and 4003 'Lode Star' has been preserved, after covering more than 2 million miles.

GWR 4-6-0 4000 'Star' class, BR livery. 22 of the 73 Stars were still in service when the railways were nationalised in 1948. The last Star was withdrawn in 1957 and 4003 'Lode Star' has been preserved, after covering more than 2 million miles.

Supports custom colours, now with versions with and without aging, no user logo.

I've now updated this with a BR version, aging, new whistle and placeable scenery Assets. The Steam image uploader for Workshop items is currently broken, so I can't add screenshots, but in the meantime you can see an image of the aging here: https://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=1355044653

It's a pity there aren't any Atlantic varients available for this class like the 2900s prototype. Maybe a 4-4-2 version of a future Saint is in order?

Huh? A '20s loco that was last seen in '57?

it is a very nice train.. but the aging, for me makes it much more realistic, and makes the game so much better, then many of the others, competing for my dollars. Thanks for your reply.

@Rei'No Otoko - It doesn't interest me much as a feature and would take me a fair bit of extra time, as I'd probably want to do custom subtle dirt and rust textures for them, rather than use the game's built in ones. I might give it a try at some point.
