Continuing to broaden my horizons in terms of prototype and scale... another T-sized train, even if the prototype's small size means the scale has to be cranked up to 1:350. This is a setting I have had in mind for a long while, and may eventually turn into a full layout.

Robert Stepheson's Rocket, I see!

Very nice.

Are you going to recreate the Rainhill trials, per chance?

I hadn't considered that option - I was thinking more of normal revenue operations a year or so later, adding a second type of loco and some mineral waggons/chaldrons. Possibly even an older horse-drawn/gravity-powered mineral train with dandy cart as a contrast.
