SR and BR (SR) Models 12

 

No.2344 is a K class 'Mogul' in Bullied's plain black wartime livery. Built from an Ace Products kit.

 

This is one of a trio of diesel shunters built at Ashford in 1937 - designed by Maunsell, and fitted with English Electric equipment. The model was constructed using a Golden Arrow resin body fitted to a ready-to-run Bachmann class 08 chassis.

 

No.E0155 is an example of a William Adams design, originally for the London and South Western Railway. Designated the 0395 class, this model is shown in the early, post-Grouping, Southern Railway livery of black, lined out in green. Built from a DJH kit.

 

No.931 "Kings - Wimbledon" is a 'Schools' class loco, built from a South Eastern Finecast kit.

 

This is an interesting and unusual looking loco. It is a G16 4-8-0T, originally designed in the latter days of the pre-Grouping London & South Western Railway, for hump-shunting in Feltham yard, by Robert Urie. Seen here in the short-lived, early Southern Railway lined black goods livery. The big Southern tanks always looked very impressive I thought. This loco was sent to me already built and painted - I just had to add the lining. Constructed from a Falcon Brassworks kit.

 

No.A776 here is another Maunsell N1 class 'Mogul' (see page 11). The three-cylinder layout required a slightly different front end arrangement to the running plate - note the high vertical panel above the buffer beam. Built from a South Eastern Finecast kit, and finished in a weathered lined green livery.
