Apologies for butting in, but this short video on Youtube demonstrates that the art of modelling in VERY large scale has not evaded us here in UK.


The Peppercorn A1 'Tornado' is the first full-size Class 1 passenger loomotive to be built in UK for over 50 years.  All of us who had anything whatsoever to do with this venture over the years are VERY proud of the effort made by the team that have built this beautiful locomotive.

the only engine that was reputed to have routinely bested the "Mallard's" speed records, but PRR execs forbid any official record attempts.

Thats my choice for "new from scratch" though I'm sure other might not agree with my choice ;)
