From SVR Wiki

It is well documented that OVS BulleidOliver Vaughan Snell Bulleid, Chief Mechanical Engineer (CME) of the Southern Railway 1937-1948 used a mixed derivative of the Whyte and UICUnion Internationale des Chemins de fer (International Union of Railways) notations as part of the number of his Pacifics when first built. i.e. 21Cxxx. Is it worth including a note to this effect on these two topics? Boldford (talk) 07:23, 7 February 2015 (UTC)

I would. It'd be nice to think of this wiki becoming a general source of railway information, so I'd say be as comprehensive as possible and don't limit articles to SVRSevern Valley Railway specifics. The signalling articles are a good example of this. On a personal note, I'm wondering why an 0-6-0 is a C, but an 0-4-0 is not a B...

An 0-4-0 *is* a B! 0-4-0s aren't mentioned in the article at present though. --WillSalt (talk) 08:51, 7 February 2015 (UTC)
