K96 - LNER/BR Thompson A2/3 4-6-2

Built in 1946/7, Edward Thompson’s version of the A2 class differed in a number of ways from the later Peppercorn engines. No. 500 was the 2000th loco built at Doncaster and was named after its designer, while in classic LNER fashion the remaining 14 members of the class carried the names of racehorses.

The kit features a whitemetal one-piece boiler/firebox/smokebox, cast footplate and detail fittings, an etched fold up cab and tender, with etched chassis and pre-assembled valve gear. Needs Motor/gearbox and Wheelset to complete. Wheels available form Markits (manufacturer) or Mainly Trains (stockist).
