Been a lover of railways since I was born, and plan to include them in a dream project. A toy line called Teganji: Toys alive. Even though it it is about toys and certain things will not make sense (Fictional loco designs, gradient steepness and so on) I want to include some factual stuff in my engines.
So hopefully I can find all I need here. Thanks you and hope all are well,

Haha, you're not the first to think of the connection, I will whole heartily agree and admit it was inspired by Thomas the living trains part. But the inhabitants of this world not much bigger than a action figure and the locos are gauge 1 in universe. Some will indeed have the face style of Sodor, but more are to have organic metal like faces made from rivits and panels.

|you probably know that Sodor is part of the Diocese name "Sodor and Man" ie that of the Isle of Man - Sodor being a shortened form of the Latin Sodorensis ie of the South Isles that is south of Norway! dating from the 12th Century when the diocese came under Trondheim - but more relevant we have our own narrow gauge railway still steam operated.

Welcome to the Forum
Reading the OP I thought of the products of Roland Emmet
Some of his "designs" have been made and run.
Possibly, there are very few models that conform EXACTLY to the drawings
My stuff tends to be made up as I go along, and from sketches on backs of envelopes.
We are all different. That is how we enjoy our hobby, doing our own thing.
