  • CAD jpg. of our forthcoming 57xx and 8750

    Here are some jpg. from the 3D CAD design of the 8750 version which is currently in the tool room, we hope to have some first shots in about two weeks time with complete set for the 0 gauge Summer show in Doncaster. We have gone the extra mile with this series of Pannier tank locomotives to include prototype detailing and operating features, just some are described here but check out the pictures for all model details and features.
    Models with top feed have prototype pipework to injector with no clack boxes on boiler back. Ashpan with prototypically correct double brake rodding on rear brake shoes. Recessed footplate at cab entrance. Small beading of number plate moulded to cab side and painted body colour, also ensures accurate fitting of number.
    Working cab doors on 8750 and later 57xx models. Partial working inside motion on all models, and the roof is secured by two small magnets to facilitate easy installation of a locomotive crew. Wheels also conform to the new 0 gauge standard, suitable for 0 superfine trackwork.
