A new aspect to your layout ...

I get the feeling the rolling stock is made by Hornby, it looks like modified items from the Thomas range.

or maybe not...i would probably prefer a black Alpha set over this.

But still a refreshing idea Cool. The Bassett-Lowke brand seems to be owned by Hornby.

Ah, OK, that explains why the rolling stock looks like it has Hornby origins.

Yeah, not quite sure what market they are aiming at with this stuff, I guess they have done their market research, but ... Confused

I guess someone asked for it at some stage ... Unsure

Aren't steam locomotives, by definition, already "steampunk"? This miniature locomotive sure looks steampunk:
