K324B - BR Std Class 9F 2-10-0 BR1B/1C tender

The 9F was the last and unquestionably one of the greatest steam locomotive designs ever produced in this country. Though many of these big 2-10-0s saw only a few years’ service their tremendous power, reliability and versatility made them a favourite with the operating departments of all BR regions. There is a choice of three different tender types – these were originally a response to regional preferences although with later transfers around the country the distinctions became blurred. This kit has the high-sided tender found on a total of 85 9Fs originally allocated to the London Midland Region – Nos 92015-19/45-59/77-86/100-39/50-64. These were all single-chimney engines. They spent their working lives on heavy freight work but some of them had a brief period of glory in the late 1950s and early 1960s when they were used on summer holiday excursions. The body is largely in whitemetal, with fold-up etched cab, and a mass of steam fittings executed for the most part in lost-wax brass for easy soldering. The etched smoke deflectors feature all the panel work and inner bracing of the original and the cab interior is complete down to the last detail. The kit also includes alternative chimneys and other detail variations to enable most members of the class to be modelled. This kit no longer contains a motor/gearbox but this can be bought separately. We recommend Slaters GB30R-3M (30:1) Motor/Gearbox Unit - designed to fit semi-invisibly into a locomotive with such a distinctively high-pitched boiler and running plate.
