Honey is perhaps the most bizarre looking locomotive on the railway, at least in terms of being uncanny. Designed to be a pleasure to drive and fire, No.7 has an enclosed tender cab, easy to maintain valve-gear and a chassis based off Belle's earlier design. Unfortunately, despite her design encompassing everything crew-friendly, she was horrendously sporadic and unreliable. Designed for speed, she began to shake violently under speed tests, and jumped a set of points just outside Deesden Road Station while attempting to stop. Nobody was hurt, but the locomotive was taken back to the works under its own steam to try and fix its issues. While this work was being done, the tender cab was fitted, and the locomotive remained in ruby red primer. Unfortunately, the shaking wasn't fixed, and she derailed yet again at low speed, after high-speed tests. The locomotive was laid up for a few months, and then testing began again.
Before this testing could be finished, winter came, and the worst snow possible hit the valley-based railway. Engines like No.1 struggled fiercely against the snow, and knowing the risks, the management ordered No.7 out of her temporary retirement, to haul the drop-off supply train, to supply each of the stations along the line. The weather bested No.7 in the end, however, and she was involved in a violent derailment ten miles into her journey, destroying a signalbox in the process. Her crew barely got away with scrapes and scratches, thanks to the safety of the enclosed cab. After this incident, she was laid up in the shed, and taken apart for a rebuild. As of January 2017, the rebuilt locomotive was brought out for testing once more, this time in pink primer.
This drawing is an updated variant of a previous one, depicting No.7 in her final appearance, as opposed to a loose concept.
