PMP8 - LNER/BR Thompson B1 4-6-0
The B1 was a two-cylinder mixed-traffic locomotive designed by Edward Thompson and first introduced in 1942. A grand total of 410 members of this class was built before the construction programme came to an end in1952. This superb kit allows the builder to incorporate many of the detail differences between batches of B1s built by Darlington and Gorton Works, North British and Vulcan Foundry.
Newly retooled by DJH, it now features a one-piece cast footplate and boiler/smokebox/firebox assembly. All the outstanding features of Walter Hodgson's original design are retained, such as the optional fully functioning screw reverse gear, opening smoke box door, working valve guides and lubricators . Thanks to its unprecedented attention to detail, this kit builds up into a true museum-quality model that requires only wheels, motor/gearbox, paint and transfers to complete.
