K80 - GNR/LNER/BR A1/A3 4-6-2 (GNR tender)
Named after famous racehorses, Gresley’s thoroughbreds were the mainstay of East Coast expresses for more than forty years. The DJH Model Loco kit captures the elegance of these celebrated locomotives. This particular kit comes with Gresley’s original pre-grouping design of eight-wheeled tender, with which many A3s ran until withdrawal.
Incorporating exceptional levels of detail, the kit includes a number of features aimed at speeding and simplifying the assembly process – from the one-piece cast footplate that cuts out the need to form complex reverse curves to the fold-up cab which comes in a variety of configurations to suit your chosen period. Chassis, valve gear etc are as per the usual DJH Model Loco specification. Many alternative parts are included to accommodate the variations of detail within this large and long-lived class. Needs Motor/gearbox and Wheelset to complete. We recommend AM9 motor/gearbox.
