  PROTOTYPE. This class was originally built by the GER from 1903. They were initially the mainstay of the London suburban service but later worked all over East Anglia, operating on many of the country branch lines. The class lasted until 1958.

The cab interior is well detailed and components are provided for the extensive pipework. The instructions are very comprehensive.

If these are desired as an alternative to the wire wiper pickups that are included in the kit. I would recommend the type produced by Slater's and provision is made in the kit chassis for fitting these (Slater's Cat No 7157).
