My name is James Heath and I run SLC.

The main reason why I started SLC was that very few developers seem interested in creating locomotives from the Southern Railway, apart from the Bulleid Pacifics. So rather than waiting for others to do it, I decided to create my own company and built the models myself.

The SR Maunsell U class 2-6-0 add-on was released in December 2012, with the SR Maunsell V ‘Schools’ class 4-4-0 add-on being released a year later.

However it was only when developing the Maunsell N15 ‘Scotchmen’ add-on that I found what I really wanted SLC to have a reputation for, variations. There were just so many with the ‘Scotchmen’ engines that it took over 4 months to document the 20 locomotives.

It’s not just a case of sitting down and starting the modelling process. Researching the history of a class and if possible individual locomotives is extremely time-consuming but extremely rewarding at the same time.

I hope that the passion I put into my add-on’s is evident.
