Ready to Run Locomotives

 

 

The re-run of the standard 57xx and 8750 is now available along with the brand new the riveted tank version of the 57xx. I will update this page with the images of the new versions as soon as possible. So far we have only received the basic DC versions with the DCC fitted models coming shortly.

GWR / BR 57xx / 8750 Pannier Tank

The Great Western Railway 5700 Class, or 57xx class, is a class of 0-6-0 pannier tank steam locomotive, built between 1929 and 1950. 863 were built, making them the most prolific class of the GWR, and one of the most numerous classes of British steam locomotive.

Although officially designated by GWR as "light goods and shunting engines", they were also used for passenger working on branch, suburban, and shorter mainline journeys.

They were distributed across most of the GWR network and, after nationalisation of the railways in 1948, across the British Railways Western Region, and also other regions.

The 5700s were not as glamorous as the GWR Castles and Kings, but became just as much of an icon of the GWR.

As a result of the 1955 Modernisation Plan, the 5700 Class was withdrawn from BR service between 1956 and 1966. Nineteen withdrawn locomotives were sold to London Transport and industry, of which ten were later preserved, along with six that were retrieved from scrapyards.

The Dapol O gauge 57xx / 8750 will have the following features:

  • Die cast Chassis and footplate for excellent adhesion and pulling power
  • Powerful 5 pole motor providing fine power control
  • Beautiful details body with correct body type variations applied where relevant with many separately added details
  • Partial representation of working inside motion and many other exquisite fine details including:
  • Four cabs for original 57xx, later 57xx, 8750 Collett cab and London Transport cab.
  • Sprung buffers
  • Removable roof, secured with magnets for ease of fitting engine crew
  • Working cab doors where fitted
  • Flickering firebox glow
  • Ash pan with correct double brake rodding
  • Expertly applied livery
  • DCC Ready with a 21 pin decoder socket
  • Sound fitted versions offer which will also include Real Drive
