BR Standard Steam Models 2
No.92025 is one of the former Crosti-boilered
class 9F freight locos, as evidenced by the lack of smoke deflectors, the
odd-shaped smokebox, and the non-standard reversing rod arrangment. The
ten 9Fs built new with Crosti boilers were not deemed a success, so were
eventually rebuilt in this form. This model uses a Hornby 'Railroad' loco
and tender chassis, with resin bodies courtesy of Golden Arrow Productions.
The class 2 BR Standard 2-6-0s, were only slightly-disguised versions of Ivatt-designed locos previously built for the LMS.
They had different boiler fittings and cabs than the LMS locos, and featured filled-in drop-down sections
of the running plate ahead of the cylinders. No.78029, seen here, was built
from a DJH kit.
