What is it?
This is not quite a new build and not quite a rebuild: the Brighton Atlantics were express locomotives that took trains from London to Brighton in an hour – no mean feat for 1911. This project will recreate one, using a boiler and some other components that have been assembled from various disparate sources. A second boiler from the same source is due to form the basis of an GCR class 2  (LNER D7) 4-4-0, with a separate post to follow on that (though an update on this has helpfully already been added to the comments on this post).

Status: Lots of components in existence, including frames and boiler

Possible completion date: not given
