It's a brace of Prairie Tanks, a Manor and a Castle, or so it appears to my eyes. It appears that both Prairie tanks are of different types too, I daresay one is a Largie Prairie 2-6-2, and one might be the 2-8-0 type, cant be too sure though.

Course, if it's a 2-8-0 it's not of the Prairie type, as 2-6-2's were always nicknamed Prairie, similar to 2-6-0's being Moguls.

I always get confised with the praries. I'm fairly sure one of them is a castle though!

Give me a King anyday...

Those steam locos look disgusting in those colours, I want to be sick...Nothing better than GWR green on those beasts. I'd rather shoot the person who put those colours on those locos in that shot!

Northern 55 I can't say I like, but the Northern 86 isn't TOO bad. Both look horrible though compared to the original liveries on them!
