K302 - LMS Ivatt class 2P 2-6-2t (Later 2P/2F;2MT)
Introduced in 1946, these lightweight modern tank locomotives were used on branch lines and local passenger services in many parts of England and Wales. Like the very similar BR Standard design (see K300) the DJH Model Loco kit features a one piece whitemetal boiler and firebox, a single casting for the footplate, etched brass cab, tank and bunker sides with fine rivet detail and a host of lost wax detail fittings including vacuum hoses, whistle and smokebox door handle. The bolt-together chassis is etched in sturdy 36 thou brass while the more delicate coupling/connecting rods, valve motion and slide bars are in nickel silver.
