Kingscale Live Steam
The 1366 Class is a relatively small model developed in response to the demand from customers who want to build their own 5" gauge garden railway. The 0-6-0 configuration and 99mm diameter wheels provides a model that can negotiate the tighter radius curves that are often a feature of the garden railway. This relatively lightweight model is easy to handle and maintain. However, this is not only a practical live steam model, but also an extremely attractive one. For GWR fans it is definitely one for your collection. The 1366 represents the best value 5" gauge model we have ever offered"

GWR 1366

GWR 1366

Unique in a number of respects for a GWR pannier tank the 1366 is a beautiful, well balanced, design that will grace your local track, or take pride of place in a home showcase. The 1366 features two outside cylinders and Stephenson valve gear. Its modest size and 0-6-0 configuration makes this an ideal model for customers seeking a relatively light 5" gauge model that is suitable for the tight radius (under 25ft) of a garden railway, or club track. Designed by C.B.Collett the prototype weighed in at just under 36 tons. Only six locomotives were completed and were assigned to lightweight shunting, branch line and pilot work. 1369 is preserved and operates on the Dart Valley Railway. Built at Swindon in 1934 the Class were modern versions of Churchward's 1361 Class saddle tanks which were built to operate in docks and on lines with severe weight restrictions. With a tractive effort exceeding 16,000 lb these engines were more powerful than a number of comparably sized locomotives such as the 14xx Class. The locomotives were presented in GWR green with Great Western written in full on the water tanks.

Each model comes complete with a silver soldered copper boiler, CE marked and hydraulically tested to twice working pressure. We supply fully compliant certificates and paperwork including an EU Declaration of Conformity. The model is built to a high specification and, due to customer demand, now benefits from a mechanical lubricator in place of the displacement type of previous models. Before final delivery to our customer each model will be subject to an inspection by Mike Pavie including a 1.5 x hydraulic boiler test to ensure there is no leakage from the boiler fittings. The model is also run on air as part of the inspection.
