LNWR W-Iron sets
Etched in 15 thou Nickel silver, they are designed specifically to be used with the Ratio LNWR wagon kits for those who wish to compensate or spring them, they are also suitable for any 9′ wheelbase LNWR wagons. Supplied with an etched mounting plate to hold the two w-irons square to the wagon and parallel with one another also at the correct distance apart. The set is sufficient for two wagons (the Ratio kits were sold in pairs), with bearings and sufficient wire to compensate or spring them on the “Prickly Pear” springy beam system.
TVR K/L class conversion kit
This is an etched brass add-on kit to convert our L&Y Barton- Wright 0-6-0 kit to a TVR K/L class. Both the L&Y and TVR bought standard Kitson 0-6-0s, although the L&Y specified some minor changes hence the slight differences. The kit includes Cab front, cab sides, cab roof, new slotted splashers with sandboxes and smokebox wingplate. See L&Y locomotives section for further details and price.
LNWR/LMS Renown 4-4-0.
The latest LNWR/LMS loco kit is the 4-4-0 Renown. The prototypes were rebuilt from the Jubilee and Alfred the Great classes between 1908 and 1922, with a total of 72 locomotives being modified. Often referred to as “Small Precursors”, they lasted until 1931.The kit includes the newly designed 2500 gallon Webb tender, also available separately.
GNR/LNER/BR D3 4-4-0.
29 GNR D2 class with a flat footplate were rebuilt to GNR D3/LNER D3 4-4-0s as depicted by this new kit. 19 lasted into BR days, the last being scrapped in 1951. Four different cabs were fitted over their working lives, early or late Ivatt, Stainmore side window (3 locos) and finally that fitted to number 2000 (later 62000), a Directors loco. The kit provides all these cab options plus the parts to provide the other minor variations they carried. Either of the two existing Ivatt tenders from the LRM range are supplied with the kit, the Horseshoe or Self Trimming types.

Resistance Soldering Units.
We are again able to supply the well know LRM Resistance Soldering Unit, priced at £190.00. Designed by the late Mike Grey, who was a 4mm modeller, a member of the Institution of Electrical Engineers and a senior lecturer in electrical engineering, the London Road Models RSU was first introduced in 1994. In excess of 3000 have been produced and supplied to modellers in a variety of scales from 2mm to Gauge 1, as well as professional builders and other manufacturers.
The RSU is supplied ready assembled in a purpose built case incorporating a highly specified 100VA transformer and professional quality components. Five different voltage settings are available by selection the appropriate connections. The specially manufactured carbon probe holder and insulated handle is fitted with flexible silicon cable for easy handling. The instructions supplied describe how to provide a suitable “return lead work plate” as well as other methods providing a suitable return connection with the supplied return lead, in addition to covering the basic techniques for using an RSU.
Owing to its weight, the RSU is available for collection at exhibitions or delivery by Parcel Force at £13.70.
