Because it was the prototype for the Scottish Twins.

Caledonian Blue is underrated, as are smokebox stars.

Good that at least one former Caledonian Railway locomotive is still in steam!

Beautiful machine (especially when you consider she's a humble goods engine) and can pull like nothing on earth, but what a stubborn awkward cow b*tch from hell she can be to work with!

I've only recently discovered this locomotive and I personally find it to be a rather regal looking steamer! It's a wonderful livery that I haven't seen often. Was this a common scheme for Cambrian locomotives? :iconfoxwhaplz: I've only recently learned of the Cambrian Railway(s) so I'm trying to learn more about them.

In any case this is a gorgeous locomotive and an excellent photograph! :clap:

What's funny is that the Caledonian Railway used these for freight service.

I don't see why it's funny. Most 0-6-0s were built for freight use anyway.

Yes, however the modern interpretation of a freight locomotive usually isn't adorned with brass smokebox stars, bright Caledonian blue, or many of the other elegant features of these locomotives!

This engine has defined preservation, the blue is very attractive, and it reminds me o the sodor Scottish twins Donald and Douglas.

How they do it is the way I deal with soot when visiting Cass: collect as much soot as I can!

We're a tough bunch up north of the border! There's a canvas sheet that can be strung up between the cab roof and front of the tender if it gets too bad though.

Great shot, and a beautiful steam locomotive 😀. I wrote a story a few months back about Donald and Douglas's escape from scrap and their journey from Scotland to Sodor. It's not canon to the Railway series where percy came forward as a deputation on the other engines behalf trying to persuade the fat controller to let Donald and Douglas stay, but the story does use a lot of historically accurate real life locations on their journey.
