Ready to Run Locomotives

 

Dapol have just announced a Fowler 0-6-0 3F Jinty for release late 2017. They have currently announced five liveries, both numbered and un-numbered being available and the option of both none sound and sound equipt in each case.

We are taking advance orders for these now for despatch as and when they become available. We will also be offering our weathered service for those who wish to take advantage of this and also our numbering service for people who wish to purchase an un-numbered model to have it completed with their choice of number.

LMS / BR Fowler 0-6-0 3F Jinty

Design of this class was based on rebuilds by Henry Fowler of the Midland Railway 2441 Class introduced in 1899 by Samuel Waite Johnson. These rebuilds featured a Belpaire firebox and improved cab. 422 Jinties were built between 1924 and 1931; this class was just one of the Midland designs used on an ongoing basis by the LMS.

When new, they were numbered 7100-7149, 16400-16764. Numbers 7150-7156 were added when the LMS absorbed the Somerset and Dorset Joint Railway locomotives in 1930. In the 1934 LMS renumbering scheme, the locomotives were assigned the series 7260-7681. On the outbreak of the Second World War in 1939 they were initially chosen as the standard shunting locomotive for the War Department, but later the more modern Hunslet "Austerity" 0-6-0ST was chosen in preference. Nevertheless, eight were dispatched to France before its fall in 1940, and only five returned in 1948. Two, 7456 and 7553, were converted to the 5ft 3in (1,600mm) Irish broad gauge in 1944 and 1945 for use on Northern Counties Committee lines in Northern Ireland, becoming the NCC Class Y, and numbered 18 and 19. A total of 412 thus entered British Railways stock in 1948, rising to 417 by the end of the year.

British Railways numbers were the LMS numbers prefixed with '4'. Numbers 47477, 47478, 47479, 47480, 47481, 47655 and 47681 were fitted for push-pull train working.

The first withdrawals started in 1959 and by 1964 half had been withdrawn. The final five survived until 1967, with a further one, 47445 continuing with the National Coal Board.

  • Die cast running plate
