Description

Many original GA drawings were used in the development of these accurate and authentic models. The locomotive has a diecast chassis with a five pole motor driving the rear wheels. To add compensation the centre driving wheels are sprung, the front pony truck is also sprung and operates on a cam so the model will negotiate R2 curves with ease.

To portray these locomotives over their lifetime many details have been drawn up as follows:-

  • Churchward Taper Buffers
  • Collett Straight Shank Buffers
  • Smokebox with/without cylinder steam pipes
  • Tall vacuum pipe for early versions
  • Lower vacuum pipe for later period
  • Tall safety valve cover
  • Short safety valve cover
  • Smoke box top mounted lamp bracket
  • Smoke box door mounted lamp bracket for B.R. period
  • Smoke box number plate for B.R. period
  • The tender is a standard Churchward 3,500 gallon type
