This model is part of our standard ready to runs which have been cleverly tooled and designed with a cast tender and cab to create a cost effective range of locomotives whilst still maintaining the outstanding quality and finish that DJH Model Loco is known for. By using larger components and removing intricate brass etchings from the build, we are able to produce these ready to runs in a shorter time frame – reducing the cost.
LNER G5 Class 0-4-4T
The NER Class O (LNER G5) 0-4-4 tank locomotive was designed by NER Chief Mechanical Engineer, Wilson Worsdell and built at Darlington Works between 1894 and 1901. The class totalled 110 and were used throughout the North Eastern area to pull branch line passenger trains and work the heavier suburban trains. From December 1937 onwards a total of twenty one G5’s were converted for Push-pull operation replacing many of the fast disappearing Sentinel steam railcars. The class had a long life with the first withdrawal in 1950, then the majority between 1955 and 1958 with no examples being preserved, although there is an initiative underway to build a G5 from scratch.
