These two classes of 0-6-0
tank engines were originally built with saddle tanks but were amongst the first
to be fitted with pannier tanks, from 1909 onwards, until all (except 1879) were
so fitted by 1933. They were very long lived, the majority being withdrawn after
World War 2 and all by 1950.
this kit, any of either of the two classes can be built as pannier tanks from
circa 1909 onwards. The kit includes parts for :
The earlier small bunker as well as the later, large bunker , early open
and later closed cabs
Fluted coupling rods for the 2721 class and plain rods for the 1854
Alternative springs for both classes
Prototypes with earlier
counter-sunk riveted tanks, intermediate snap-head riveted tanks or
later welded tanks can also be built from the kit.
