The kit contains alternative parts to enable construction of an accurate model
of the GWR Collett 2251 0-6-0, from new in 1930 to withdrawal, apart from a couple of minor exceptions.
of the engines built before the War were paired with second-hand Dean 3000
gallon tenders, except 2281-86 which had ex-ROD tenders. From Lot
337 in 1940, new 3000 gallon tenders of Collett pattern were provided although
not all the new engines received new tenders because only fifty tenders of this
design were produced. After the war, many of the older engines, and some of
the newer ones, received second-hand Churchward 3500 gallon tenders.
The rear sandboxes fitted to the final Lot
(nos. 3200-3219) - causing the injectors to be mounted
further to the rear - are not included in the kit.
