Below is a list of some of my favourite kinds of locomotives and their classes, when they were built, their wheel configuration, and how fast they can go.

I discovered the Fletcher Jennings Class C, LB&SCR E2 Class, LMS Fowler Class 3F, LNER Class A4, Bagnall 0-4-0ST, Midlander 4wDM, Hunslet Austerity, British Rail Class 08, BR Class 42 "Warship", and British Rail Class 17 because certain engines of Thomas and Friends - Skarloey, Thomas, Jinty, Spencer, Bill and Ben, Rusty, Wilbert, Diesel, 'Arry and Bert, and Splatter and Dodge, Diesel 10, and Derek - are based on these classes.

Although I have officially grown out of Thomas and Friends, I still haven't completely abandoned it permanently. This is partly due to my interest in characters, and my interest in locomotives. The rest of the classes that are featured here I discovered in 2010 while reading through this book of locomotives, with the exception of the Minerva Kerr Stuart "Victory" 0-6-0T, BR Class 03, and BR Class 20 which I discovered sometime in 2017. Enjoy! :D
