I'd like to see more BR Standards like the 10F you have. I've changed mine around a bit: I added four more classes and made my 2-6-4T examples different tank examples (a 2-6-4WT for the 3MT and a 2-6-4SWT [saddle-well tank if there is such a thing). Anyway, on to the further "Standards:"
3P (4-4-0): loosely based on the 3MT Moguls by swapping the front driving axle for another leading axle. 20 built, all scrapped.

4P 4-4-0: like the 4-4-0 "Standard" you drew on the page with the "Camelback" up top. Twenty were built, and seven of these unusual locomotives, named after London terminals, were preserved, including 74893, King's Cross, at the National Railway Museum.

4P 4-4-2: like the above, but with a rear trailing wheel. 10 built, all scrapped.

8F (2-10-0): though a very small class, all but one locomotive of the five survived into preservation. Also called the "Composer" class because the locomotives are named after British composers. Here are the five members:
Sir Edward Elgar  located at the NRM

98501: Ralph Vaughan Williams – displayed at Locomotion Shildon

98502: Benjamin Britten  active and fully restored ton BR Brunswick green on the Bluebell Railway

98503: Henry Purcell – scrapped after a derailment outside St. Pancras Station on 19 November 1960 at 20.45.
Sir Alexander Mackenzie  on static display at the Bo'ness and Kinneil Railway

Loving the reenactment pictures on here, I've always wanted to do something like it, but it seems like there aren't many around me, the closest one would probably be Gettysburg.

Thank you so much! It can be an issue finding decent events, I've found it best to pick an era first then work from there, you can of course collect militaria without going to so many events, I'm kind of falling into that bracket more and more.
