GNR/LBSCR ATLANTICS February 05 2019

We would like to know if there is any interest in us doing the GNR/LBSCR Atlantics as a project? 

Primarily this would be the large boiler GNR Altantics, from GNR to BR and the LBSCR H1 and H2 from LBSCR to BR.

These would be to our design from scratch. To see the standard we build to look at the SECR D class.
