New Kit and RTR - LNER/BR J39 0-6-0
The class was introduced by Nigel Gresley in July 1926, based on his previous Class J38
0-6-0 (introduced in January 1926) but with larger driving wheels(increased from the J38's
4ft 8in, to 5ft 2in). The larger wheels enabled them to be used on both passenger and
goods trains, although at the expense of a lower tractive effort. As a result they were
given the BR power classification 4P/5F, rather than the 6F of the earlier class. A total of
289 examples were produced at Darlington and Beyer, Peacock & Co. over next fifteen
years and were found on the North East, Southern and Scottish areas of the LNER.
The larger wheels necessitated the provision of 6in deep splasher casings over the front
two wheels, which is the main visual difference between the two classes. The locomotives
were all fitted with superheaters and Ross 'Pop' safety valves.
All survived into British Railways ownership in 1948 and they were numbered 64700-64988.
They began to be withdrawn from service in 1959 and all examples had been scrapped
by the end of 1962.
