GER E22 -LNER J65
The G. E. R. built twenty of the E22 class between 1889 and 1893. They all lasted into L.N.E.R. ownership, while five survived into B.R. hands, the last one being scrapped in 1956. The later batch had lower side tanks, this being the only apparent difference.Eight were fitted with vacuum brakes after the grouping and some were fitted with high cab roofs incorporating a sliding ventilation hatch. Other changes included the replacement of Ramsbottom safety valves with the Ross Pop variety and steam heating pipes and train vacuum pipes.

The kit has the body components etched in brass, with the chassis etched in nickel silver. Cast and turned brass and cast whitemetal fittings are supplied. The instructions contain comprehensive details of the various modifications to the prototypes through their existence, with detail sketch to enable the modeller to build the loco of his choice.

G.E.R. C72/ L.N.E.R. J68
The G.E.R. C72 class 0-6-0T was built as condensing passenger locomotives, equipped with Hill parallel chimneys and Ramsbottom safety valves. They had a high arc profile wooden roof, three coal rails on the bunker and were fitted with Westinghouse brakes. Some were converted in late G.E.R. days to a elliptical roof profile and were fitted with taper chimneys and Ross pop safety valves. The L.N.E.R. fitted steel cab roofs, six coal rails, group standard buffers and on some locomotives, mechanical lubricators mounted on the front footplate. Some had the condensing apparatus removed and were reclassified as G75 shunting engines.The kit has the body components etched in brass, with the chassis etched in nickel silver. Cast and turned brass and cast whitemetal fittings are supplied. The instructions contain comprehensive details of the various modifications to the prototypes through their existence, with detail sketch to enable the modeller to build the loco of his choice.

LOCO122 G.E.R. S56/ L.N.E.R. J69/1
Another long lasting G.E.R. 0-6-0T design, the S56 class became L.N.E.R. J69/1 and in B.R. hands lasted almost to the end of the steam era. The last were scrapped in 1962, with no 68619 spending it’s last few years in fully lined G.E.R. livery. As built they were condenser equipped with high side tanks, Ramsbottom safety valves and Westinghouse braking systems for passenger working Originally fitted with stovepipe chimneys, these were replaced by lipped versions in 1930. The condensing apparatus was variously removed between 1923 and 1936, although it was refitted to two locos. As built the cab roofs were a shallow arc profile but the L.N.E.R. fitted higher elliptical steel roofs and increased the number of coal rails from three to six.
The kit has the body components etched in brass, with the chassis etched in nickel silver. The loco fittings are a mixture of lost wax cast brass for the finer components, with high quality cast whitemetal for the larger, simpler, fittings. The instructions contain comprehensive details of the various modifications to the prototypes through their existence, with detail sketch to enable the modeller to build the loco of his choice.
