Mountaineer III[edit]

Should this locomotive be included? I would argue that it shouldn't. This is because, despite being a replica of an FR locomotive, it will not itself be an FR loco as it is being constructed by a private organisation. If in the future it becomes clear that it will be permanently based at the FR it could be included here, but at the moment I don't think this sis the case.

Feel free to change it, it's a wiki after all. It seemed the logical place at the time. Edward Harris (talk) 17:07, 12 November 2019 (UTC)

I'm still partly undecided. The new Gowrie presents similar problems. Perhaps a new category for non-FfWHR locos with strong FfWHR links could be included somehow (the category would need a snappier title though...). This could also include locos such as the C2 or Baldwin 608 which are privately owned but long term FfWHR residents. Ed - Eheaps (talk) 17:19, 12 November 2019 (UTC)

I think until they are running locos, here is as good a place as any. If they don't spend much time on the F&WHR after they are complete, then they can be relagated to the "Visiting Locos" list. Edward Harris (talk) 22:57, 12 November 2019 (UTC)

I'm still not convinced it should be listed as an FR loco, but seeing as I haven't got a better solution yet I guess it is as good a place as any for the time being. Ed - Eheaps (talk) 09:52, 13 November 2019 (UTC)

Once we know its fate in the long run, we can make a further decision re its inclusion I reckon. RedDragon (Send me a telegram) 09:54, 13 November 2019 (UTC)
