LNER Class Y6, Tram Loco

  PROTOTYPE. This class of ten engines was built in 1883 by the GER to work on the Wisbech and Upwell tramway. They were designed to meet the rigid specification for locomotives operating on public roads. The class also worked on the quayside lines at Great Yarmouth and other ports. The last locomotive was withdrawn in 1952.

  KIT. The main body and chassis components are etched in brass. Parts are provided for a detailed interior. The instruction booklet is very comprehensive and is illustrated with drawings and photographs.

- 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 booklet will allow you to evaluate the kit and its construction and help you to determine its suitability for yourself and your project. The booklet is made up of two 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 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) & 24 on an A4 sheet of paper. Turn the printed paper over and print the second pdf page containing booklet pages 2 & 23 on the other side. Then on another sheet of paper print the third pdf page containing booklet pages 3 & 22 and so on until you reach the booklet centre pages 12 & 13.
