K344 LNER D49/2 HUNT Class 4-4-0 Kit

The LNER D49 Class 4-4-0 locomotive was designed by LNER Chief Mechanical
Engineer, Sir Nigel Gresley and built at Darlington Works between 1927 and 1935. The
class totalled 76 and were used throughout the North Eastern and Scottish area’s for
main line passenger trains. Usually they hauled express services, but they were also seen
on some semi-fast and stopping services as well. Wartime conditions resulted in less
services that suited the D49's abilities and by the mid-1950s, the introduction of diesel
multiple units and diesel locomotives reduced the available duties even further. Planned
withdrawals in both regions started in September 1957. The last withdrawal was
No. 62712 Morayshire in July 1961. This was privately purchased for preservation, and
is currently restored to operating condition.

The model depicts the D49/2 (Hunt Class) as fitted with Lentz gear and introduced to
service in 1929 the last of the class was withdrawn from service in 1961.
