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 Standards, were only slightly diguised versions of Ivatt-designed locos previously built for the LMS. They had different boiler fittings, cabs and filled-in drop-down sections of the running plate ahead of the cylinders. No.78029, seen here, was built from a DJH kit.
