Yes, it's a Co-Co wheel arrangement. Here's a better pic. The weathering is factory applied.

There you go! I'm guessing that it runs as good as it looks. I have a DB Bo-Bo diesel sitting at my house right now that came in the mail while I've been away, I won't get to take a look at it until later tonight.
Now I have a question or two. Would the train that the Fiat locomotive is pulling have a caboose or guards coach or something on the rear? Also, would it be correct to run my BR Steamers without a brake van?

I think it was mainly UK and Australian trains that had a seperate guards van. All UK trains would have had a guards van during the steam era and for some time after. I'm not really an expert, maybe someone else will chip in with a better answer.

Interestingly British Railways gave most of their diesel locos and frieght stock official names to identify them. One type of brake van was a "toad" and there were "Sea Cow" and "Sea Lion" ballast wagons. There was a 0-6-0 class14 diesel called a "Teddy Bear".

The Terrier would be more like Era 2?
I think the J72 would be more era 4/5?
I'm shooting for era 4/5 because of the Ivatt, and then the M7 being in black paint.
Nice pics!

Nice pics!
The era would depend on which railway the Terrier was being used by...they were in service from 1872-1968....so eras2-6
The one in the photo would be eras2-3 in that livery.

The J94, not J72( my mistake) is era 5, late crest..........

Here is a rough breakdown of the UK steam eras,

UK rail era 1. Pioneering (1804 - 1874)
UK rail era 2. Pre-grouping (1875 - 1922)
UK rail era 3. The Big Four - LMS, GWR, LNER & SR (1923 - 1947)
UK rail era 4. BR steam. Early Crest (1948 - 1956)
UK rail era 5. BR steam. Late Crest (1957 - 1966)
UK rail era 6. BR Corporate Blue. Pre -TOPS (1967 - 1971)
UK rail era 7. BR Corporate Blue. Post -TOPS (1972 - 1982)
UK rail era 8. BR Sectorisation (1983 - 1994)
UK rail era 9. Post-privatisation (1995 - 2011)

And diesel eras.

UK rail era 4. BR steam. Early Crest (1948 - 1956)
UK rail era 5. BR steam. Late Crest (1957 - 1966)
UK rail era 6. BR Corporate Blue. Pre -TOPS (1967 - 1971)
UK rail era 7. BR Corporate Blue. Post -TOPS (1972 - 1982)
UK rail era 8. BR Sectorisation (1983 - 1994)
UK rail era 9. Post-privatisation (1995 - 2011)

Genetk44, Are you holding to a specific era, or "winging it"? Thanks for the chronology, that is helpful. (I'm learnin' sumpin')! I've got to study some on the Break/ Brake van conundrum.
jlc41, Thank you, but yeah it's 4x8. Deception, you see. Close shots and lots of crowded in scenes break it up to deceive the eye. You may not realize how yours appears too others. It looks larger because as your work progress it tends to draw attention to certain elements. You don't see the edges anymore.
