K38 - BR/WD Austerity 2-8-0/LNER 07

For three decades these engines were the unsung workhorses of British Railways, working freight trains all over the country. They were introduced in 1943 in response to a need for a simple, rugged heavy hauler that could be used to help the war effort. After the war they were sold off cheaply and a total of 733 ultimately came into BR hands. This kit is equally straightforward and includes a one-piece whitemetal boiler, cast footplate, etched cab and tender body. The chassis is as robust as the prototype’s and features etched nickel-silver valve gear.

Needs Motor/gearbox and Wheelset to complete.

We recommend AM10 motor/gearbox.
