Dean Goods etches on a Farish 4F chassis (Poole built chassis)
Dean Goods, a GWR, BR and preserved loco
Introduced in 1883, 260 of this light and versatile engine were built. Able to work any where on the Great Western they were used on many rural pickup goods and passenger services. Most of the class survived into BR days and they were popular on the railtours of the late 1950s, early 1960s. No. 2516 is preserved.
Dean Goods Foundation etches, a first step towards building a loco and tender body. Etches have detail, tab and slot location, and come with notes identifying the parts and how they relate to each other.
Etches fit a heavily modified Farish 4F loco chassis and GWR tender chassis, Poole design, (not inc.). The Dean firebox is too small to accept the Farish motor. The N Brass Tender Mounted Drive 28250 is one option to drive the loco.
Kit needs chassis, boiler, firebox front, fittings, adhesive/solder paint, number/ nameplates and transfers to complete.
