SR and BR (SR) Models 1

(Also London Brighton & South Coast Railway, London & South Western Railway and South East & Chatham Railway)

 

No.703 is one of Dougald Drummond's famous T9 "Greyhounds", originally built for the London and South Western Railway, but seen here in Southern Railway lined olive green and towing a "water-cart" tender. This is the narrow-cabbed version, and is built from a Westward kit.

 

One of Maunsell's "Z" class 0-8-0 tanks designed for heavy shunting work, No.954 is built from a DMR kit and sports the early Southern Railway goods livery of black with green lining.

 

An Adam's "radial" tank, so called because of the design of the rear carrying wheel arrangment that allowed these locos to negotiate very sharp curves, and ultimately led to their unusually long life, some ending up on the Lyme Regis branch until the 1960s. This kit, originally marketed by Ks, is now available from Nu-Cast.

 

No.857 "Lord Howe" was one of the "Lord Nelson" class of express passenger locos designed by R.E.L.Maunsell. This one differed from the rest of the class for a time though, because, as depicted in this model, it was fitted with an experimental boiler in 1937. This model was constructed from a limited edition Craftsman kit.

 

Ah..... a little 'Terrier'. This particular loco was a repainted Dapol model that I did for a customer some years ago. It was adorned with specially-made transfers to represent one of the Brighton Works shunters. More recently, this exact engine could be bought off-the-shelf, as it is part of the Hornby range, although it has since been discontinued.

 

No.1592 is a Wainwright "C" class 0-6-0 built from a South Eastern Finecast kit.
