Information & Sample Instruction Sheets
LNER Class J20, 0-6-0 Heavy Freight Engine

  PROTOTYPE. 25 of these locomotives were built from 1920 by the Great Eastern Railway as class D81. Designed for heavy freight work these were the most powerful 0-6-0’s in the country and remained so until the Q1’s were built in 1942. The class passed through LNER ownership into BR and lasted until 1956.

  KIT. This was originally produced by Majestic Models but is of similar specification and compares very well with the kits that have been designed by myself. The main body components are brass and all the chassis is nickel silver. Valve gear is represented between the frames and the cab interior is detailed. The instruction booklets are very comprehensive and fully illustrated.

- Optional Plunger Electrical Pickups -
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).

  Downloading the instruction booklets will allow you to evaluate the kit and its construction and help you to determine its suitability for yourself and your project. The booklets are made up of three parts :-
Download Etched and Cast Parts Identification Sheets
  These are individual A4 sheets that identify and number in assembly order all the etched parts and have photographs of each casting, identifying them by name and listing the quantity of each. There is also a selection of photographs of a finished model taken from different angles.
  I would recommend downloading and opening these sheets first as it will be almost as exciting as opening the real kit box and handling all the parts.
Download Locomotive Assembly Instruction Booklet
  The booklet is designed to print as two A5 pages printed on each side of an A4 sheet of paper (set printer for portrait). Staple the A4 sheets in the centre and fold to form an A5 tentfold booklet.
  Print each A4 page individually (set your printer for current page only). Then print the first pdf page containing booklet pages 1 (front cover) & 36 on an A4 sheet of paper. Turn the printed paper over and print the second pdf page containing booklet pages 2 & 35 on the other side. Then on another sheet of paper print the third pdf page containing booklet pages 3 & 34 and so on until you reach the booklet centre pages 18 & 19.
Download Tender Assembly Instruction Booklet
  The booklet is designed to print as two A5 pages printed on each side of an A4 sheet of paper (set printer for landscape). Staple the A4 sheets in the centre and fold to form an A5 booklet.
  Print each A4 page individually (set your printer for current page only). Then print the first pdf page containing booklet pages 1 (front cover) & 20 on an A4 sheet of paper.
