C class 0-6-0 loco for SECR, Southern, BR and Preservation
C Class 0-6-0 locomotives were built by the South Eastern and Chatham Railway from 1900 on. 109 were built for main line goods duties. The last loco 31592 was withdrawn in 1967 and is preserved.
During their life the locos changed little except for their liveries and the numbers they carried. In Southern Railway days they pulled secondary passenger trains and in British Railways days Engineers trains. They were also used on Hop Pickers specials and local passenger trains. 108 entered BR stock.
The C class body kit contains all the parts to build a loco and tender body.
As with all our kits, body etches are designed to reduce the number of small etched parts by providing large parts that fold up. Boiler is a whitemetal casting, boiler fittings, chimney, dome, buffers, etc are lost wax castings, and the kit includes handrail knobs
and handrail wire. Also included are the TMD gearbox and universal joints to modify the Farish chassis.
Body fits a Farish 4F loco and tender chassis, Poole design, (not inc). The TMD gearbox driven from the tender by a small motor (not inc) replaces the Farish motor.
Kit needs chassis, motor with a 1.5mm shaft,, adhesive/solder, paint and transfers to complete.
