Tank Loco Kits
LNER Class J50, 0-6-0 Tank

PROTOTYPE. Gresley designed the class in 1922 for the GNR. The design became the LNER standard shunting engine, with 72 built. The class lasted until 1963.

KIT. Because of the shape of the prototype this kit is a bit more  complicated and challenging than the other 0-6-0 tank kits. The parts fit together well and a number of customers have said they enjoyed building it. The main body components are brass with a nickel silver chassis. Cab interior components and well-illustrated instructions are provided.

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).
