Seven Canon Engines by thejonateers Seven Canon Engines by thejonateers
Note: a few more changes need making to Skarloey on the whole, primarily a fixed bogey and the toolbox that Skarloey gains in The Little Old Engine (Kenney A onwards on this graphic).

Anyway, the many Skarloeys I had outlined before have been narrowed down somewhat, as I dropped from my plans one or two hypothetical configurations. Besides these seven "as illustrated" versions, there are still two or three others I will probably do, but I figured it might be cool to show these in a chronological sequence. The main reason behind me uploading this though is in case anyone can spot anything I might have missed or done incorrectly, given that I've been making these out of order and therefore had to undo certain more modern modifications for other versions. When we reach anything post-Dalby, the four Skarloeys painted in the NWR red there, I've tried to make sure each one is different enough to justify its existence, so hopefully none of these seem like pointless variants.

If anything, the oddest one here is Kenney B, as I decided to use this model to represent Skarloey in both Gallant Old Engine (1962) and Great Little Engines (1985), meaning it needed to appear as a transition between three more distinct versions rather than two. So when viewing this timeline imagine the Kenney B model between Edwards and Spong, too.

The only other version I'm definitely doing is a run-down Skarloey that more closely matches the Four Little Engines text than Dalby's illustrations, but this will mainly exist for the fantastically pathetic wooden door. There will still possibly be a hypothetical livery bearing the name "Scacaloey", a TV series livery if it doesn't look dreadful, and probably - bending my rule on prototypical locos - an "as illustrated" cabless Talyllyn from "Crosspatch".

If anyone has any suggestions or criticisms feel free to throw them my way.

Love on ya,
The Jonateer

In terms of dimensions, it's fairly accurate (although I swapped from imperial to metric partway through both Skarloey and Rheneas, so many original measurements were rounded up or down for my convenience), based on 1952 drawings IIRC. As far as the details go - number of rivets, exact position of cab controls and functional components - much of that has been improvised to suit either my personal preference or the character as illustrated in the books.

Skarloey was Built in 1864, and Rheneas was Built in 1866.
