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 competent modelers, our K49 kit is supplied with fitting instructions which details the tools required and step-by-step instructions to guide you through the build.
The kit covers Somerset & Dorset Joint Railway 2-8-0s Nos. 80-85, which were delivered in 1914 and withdrawn under BR between 1959-1962, as well as Nos 53806-9 which were originally built with larger boilers but were later reboilered. Designed by Sir Henry Fowler, they were primarily used for freight work but in BR days were often used on holiday traffic between Bath and Bournemouth.
The kit includes the Deeley tender with a tender cab option, and features a cast one-piece boiler/firebox/smokebox with etched cab, coupling rods, valve gear and chassis.
