Hi, I love the pics on here, and thank you for putting it all together. This loco has 8 driving wheel not six, so it cannot be a 600 class pacific. Perhaps it is a 500 class (originally a 4-8-2 - "organisations depcited" category says Mountain Type Locomotive, whicg is a 4-8-2) or maybe a 700 class loco (very similar to a 600 class pacific but with different wheel arrangement and smaller diameter driving wheels).

You have a great site here (I am British and live in London).
