K324A - BR Std Class 9F 2-10-0 BR1G tender - Evening Star
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 covers Nos 92000-92007 (WR), 92008-92009 (LMR) and 92203-92250 (WR) which had the cutaway BR1G tender. Originally a Western Region specification, many of engines later moved to both the London Midland and North Eastern regions. 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 the Slaters GB30R-3M motor/gearbox- designed to fit semi-invisibly into a locomotive with such a distinctively high-pitched boiler and running plate.
