Yes, I´m with you and I suggest that Samisu UPLOAD a better picture of GARRATT:
The first Garratts
In 1907 Beyer, Peacock & Co. submitted a proposal for a 2 ft (610 mm) gauge 0-4-0+0-4-0 Garratt to the New South Wales Government Railways, which was not proceeded with. The following year a design for a 2 ft gauge Mallet locomotive was submitted in reply to an enquiry from the Government of Tasmania. This was followed with a submission for a Garratt based on, but a little heavier than, the New South Wales proposal. This proposal was accepted, and two locomotives were built in 1909, which became the K class. The K class had to cope with 99' radius curves and 1 in 25 gradients.
Unlike in Garratt's patent, Tasmanian Railways insisted on a compound arrangement with cylinders facing inwards, in order to reduce the distances between both the main steam pipe and the high-pressure cylinders, and between the high-pressure and low-pressure cylinders. This made the locomotive unnecessarily complicated and placed the high-pressure cylinders directly underneath the cab, making it uncomfortably hot, especially in summer. The pattern was not repeated on later Garratt designs. Only one more Garratt locomotive, again built by Beyer, Peacock & Co. in 1927, was produced with compound propulsion for the Burma Railways.
Early design and construction difficulties involved the steam-tight flexible connections between the boiler unit and the power units. These were solved by Beyer, Peacock's designers after studying a description of the spherical steam joints used on a Fairlie locomotive built for the Ffestiniog Railway followed by a visit to the FR to observe these locomotives at work.
Pls VOTE: GARRATT
Hi LYNA I'm using images I get from HQ so I don't have to worry about any licences. If Garratt doesn't get enough votes here on international forum, then let's hope other forums and Facebook votes can turn Garratt into black horse. Thanks for the images and history lesson Much appreciated!
Hello Samisu, I'm sorry to bother you in the choice you 're offering us to choose the next passenger engine for the Era 1 you cannot put loks from the 2d era like the SNCF 241A.
The SNCF was created in 1938, eighteen years after the end of era 1 !
Hi CLFG, thank you for your feedback. I'll have to ask around

Hi miclem, I tried signing in to com-202 and had no problems, so perhaps it was just a temporary error? If you still can't sign in, please clear cookies and cache, and then contact Support if that didn't work
Has it been a month already since we opened the new forum? A few laughs, great new ideas from players, feedback on Plus and we've also had fresh new contests since then! Yes, we also had some technical problems and for this the Rail Nation Team is 'RNSORRY'. The other bonus code 'RNMOON' is also active (for now), and you can activate these from Options -> Redeem bonus code.

Our technical team is working hard to get the servers back online as soon as possible. I am so sorry for the inconvenience. More information here:
is there any idea of a time frame that games will be back up?
I'm sorry ClayG, but no news yet. At least forums are working now, albeit a bit slow.
