All DJH Model Loco kits are designed with an extreme attention to detail and built to the scale of the original model. Our Research and Development team examine archived drawings to gain access to the most intricate details of the original model and replicate this in the model designs – even down to the number of rivets used!
Handcrafted by our incredibly skilled team of modelers, toolmakers and craftsmen, all products are made at our modern factory based in Consett, County Durham. Using high-quality materials such as pewter and brass, DJH Model Loco kits are extremely durable and built to last.
Suitable for experienced modelers, our K338 kit is supplied with fitting instructions which details the tools required and step-by-step instructions to guide you through the build.
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 totaled 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 21 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.
