The quintessential branch line loco...
Designed by C.B.Collett the
class was introduced in 1932. Initially designated
48xx Class they were re-classified14xx Class in
Away from the sound and fury of
the main line these pretty little locomotives plied
their trade on a majority of Western Region branch
lines, winding their way through the rolling
countryside. Their quiet progress respectful of
their bucolic setting - as quintessentially British
as cricket on the village green.
All 75 of the 14xx Class were
fitted for push/pull working so the train could be
driven from either end when coupled with an auto
coach and this avoided running round at terminal
stations. On busier branch lines the locomotive was
"sandwiched" between two, or more, auto coaches.
The model is offered in a
choice of three attractive liveries:
British Railways lined black
British Railways lined green
To complete your train we are
pleased to offer an auto coach (or two?) in a
suitable livery to match your choice of locomotive.
Constructed of the finest
materials the Kingscale 14xx stands comparison with
the very best. The copper boiler is silver soldered
and hydraulically tested to twice working pressure.
It is fired by a near silent gas burner fitted with
a ceramic fire bed which emits a bright glow through
the firebox viewing window. The burner is simply
ignited via the locomotive chimney and no artificial
draught is required. The motion is machined from
solid stainless steel for long life and exceptional
resistance to corrosion.
