Information & Sample Instruction Sheets
LNER Class J37, 0-6-0 Heavy Goods Loco

  PROTOTYPE. 104 of these locomotives were built between 1914 & 1921. They were the North British Railways largest 0-6-0 tender loco. The last of the class being withdrawn in 1966. They were employed on heavy freight work but in the summer they often had a day out to the sea side hauling excursion passenger trains.

  KIT. The body is mainly brass with a nickel silver chassis. A nice level of detail including cab interior is provided. The instructions are very comprehensive and consist of the original Majestic exploded drawings complemented by a written text describing step by step how I built a sample of the kit.

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).
