Before the might of the Black 5, Stanier’s steam power took a smaller form. Featuring a 2-6-0 wheel configuration and design elements from the GWR, Stanier’s Mogul Class was a fleet of 40 strong and a key player for the railway’s passenger and freight services, and thanks to the efforts of Bossman Games, it can be experienced authentically in Train Simulator.
The London Midland and Scottish Railway was ripe for new traction in the 1930s, and recently appointed Chief Mechanical Engineer, William Stanier, was put to the task of delivering a new range of steam motive power.
Being of Great Western lineage, Stanier took inspiration from the designs of the GWR, and put them to use when adapting another design, the Horwich Mogul (also known as the Hughes Crab). The result became known as the Stanier Mogul, which would be built between 1933 and 1934. The Stanier Moguls were mixed-traffic capable and had a favourable power rating, and proved themselves as worthy locomotives until the arrival of diesels.
Unfortunately only a single locomotive survived into preservation, making Stanier’s earliest work a rare find in the heritage scene. Memories of the Mogul’s yesteryears live on ever-strong however, and now can be re-lived within Train Simulator with Bossman Games’ LMS Stanier Mogul.
