Eldritch Engines
LMS Black 5 - 5025
A strong and reliable engine used to pull goods and passenger trains. A no nonsense creature who will get angry if disturbed from its work.

A couple of questions for Scotty! Do you ever wish you could travel the globe again and meet new engines? And did you ever met Union Pacific's Steam Stars(844, 4014, 3985) during your trip to America in '69?
Scotsman: Haha I would if I could but unfortunately I'm a little old and rickety these days, so no globe-trotting in the future. Maybe a short jaunt to Europe but aside from that, I don't think that I could handle much more, unfortunately.
I only met 844, the Living Legend! as they are called. A truly magnificent lady. Such a beast of an engine would love to see her again.
I am sad that I didn't get to meet one of the Big Boy Class. It would have been quite the sight I am sure.

Ooh, ooh! Question for Bittern! What's the funniest/most embarrassing prank you've ever pulled (and was it on Mallard, the grumpy duckie?)
Bittern: Mallard's no fun. Once I managed to trick him into pulling one of my Flying Scotsman runs but for him to realise it was express freight when he was diverted into a siding to let me pass. He hasn't let it go almost 100 years later, like damn brother, chill the fuck out, have a laugh once in a while.
As for the funniest prank? Why that would have to be a little tomfoolery that Scotsman and myself banded together to pull off.
Flying Scotsman had just come back from America and he had a slight American accent. So when he was repaired and back to his former self, we managed to convince a lot of the engines that they'd brought back the wrong engine.
We soon had to put a stop to it after some of the British Railways Directors complained to Sir Alpine but it was probably one of the best pranks we've pulled simply because it lasted so long and is still remembered to this day.

Look at this silly sausage.
Scotsman: I am NOT a sausage!

God reading back on the earlier entries of Young Iron made me cringe because of some of the inaccuracies and errors.
Tumblr media
Still pretty happy with it though but there were a few things I got wrong like calling tornado an A3 and other dumb shit.

To Tornado! If someone were to give you a blahaj from IKEA... Would that make you a Sharknado?
Tornado: You know how many people think they're funny with the Sharknado joke? 🙄 Too many. 🦈🌪️
Bittern bought me a Shark Plush one year for my build day. I was NOT impressed.
Scotsman: The Shark plush was actually Olivia's idea.

Hey Tornado! Come to Europe! We'd love to have you in Poland! We still have a Steam Engine working the mainline!
Tornado: REALLY? That’s amazing! I’d love to meet a Steam Engine that still works the mainline! ✨💚 Poland sounds like an amazing country! I know Truro’s been to the Netherlands, he talks about it so fondly. Maybe I could convince the Trust to do a European Tour? You never know! 💚💚💚

To Scotsman or Tornado
If you could go to North America would you? And why?
(This is the wrong blog to ask- @askyoungiron is the rp blog but I'll answer it anyway)
Scotsman: I have been to North America! Canada too! It was a fun trip, erm, well mostly. In the end there I don't like the think about it. But if I could go back (and be guaranteed not to get stranded) I would 110% go back to America again and see some old friends! Maybe even meet the Legendary Big Boy! I heard they're a sight to behold!
Tornado: Yes I'd love to go to America! I want to meet some of those really big engines! 😱 Scott says that British engines are so small compared to American engines! I'd also like to experience a railroad, are they different from British Railways? 🤔

Scott and Tornado, what are your relationships like with Evening Star? She seems nice.
Scotsman: Why she's a darling! Very rambunctious and outgoing! I think she still has some of her youth to her unlike the rest of us old geezers! Haha! She's always a blast when she's around and think she was the one who got Truro into David Bowie.
She describes me as the fun uncle of the NRM so I guess I'm the fun one!
Tornado: She's like a big sister to me I guess. 😕 Scott introduced me one day and she kinda smothered me with love and treated me like a little kid. I didn't like it. I don't like it when engines I meet treat me like a kid. After that she eased up a bit but she still annoys me with the little kid stuff. 😠

Introducing 3801's edgy brother, 3803!
((First graphic is wrong, 3803 is a 4-6-2))
This is Class 38, Number 3! Known for pulling Mixed goods and passengers. He's completely black with red stripes and I love it.
There are not many good photos of 3803 and a lot of them are 3801 photoshopped with her brother's livery. So I've had to use a few photos of the models.
Video of 3803 pulling a mixed goods train.

do having the dragons as part of them make this version of ingo and emmet fight more? i can see the constant back and forth between the dragons sometimes playing out between them
Tumblr media Tumblr media
they fight more but only on this kind of stuff
- montague “duck” the great western engine has a tumblr sexy man wiki page
- Truth is subjective; a strong enough Ideal can become Truth
- they debate this specific topic regularly
