 "Following the success of our 5" gauge "Jinty" model it was a logical step to create a 7.25" gauge version. Its 0-6-0 wheel arrangement deliveries a powerful passenger hauler in a manageable size. Over the last couple of years our supplier has manufactured a number of high quality 7.25" gauge models for public passenger hauling at a number of theme parks. These locomotives are designed for sustained running on a regular basis and our "Jinty" model will benefit from this experience".

The 3F "JINTY"

Some 425 of these locomotives were manufactured between 1924 and 1931. Mainly allocated to shunting and station pilot duties they also undertook occasional branch line work. The "Jinties" were frequently used for banking duties with up to three at a time seen assisting express passenger trains up the Lickey Incline on the Bristol-Birmingham line near Bromsgrove. They were frequently seen banking trains out of London Euston up to Camden - a particularly demanding task!
Designed by Sir Henry Fowler for the London, Midland and Scottish Railway they were based on earlier designs by S&W. Johnson.
Some of the locomotives were loaned to the War Department in WWII, providing welcome logistical support to the allied war effort.
A majority of locomotives enjoyed long service with the final "Jinty" withdrawn in 1967, right at the end of the steam era. The locomotives were always painted in un-lined black livery. Before nationalisation in 1948 LMS initials were carried on the tank sides. In BR service either lion crest was carried according to period.


The 7.25" Gauge Model

The "Jinty" in 7.25" gauge provides a great combination of manageable size, pulling power and affordability. Delivered fully painted, and ready-to-run, this attractive model is destined to become a favourite on 7.25" gauge tracks across the UK.

The model's silver soldered copper boiler is hydraulically tested to twice its working pressure and is UKCA marked. We are pleased to offer a full 2 years warranty with each model and happy to pledge our ongoing help and support over what we anticipate will be many years of enjoyable ownership.

Batch of 25 Models

We have presently reserved factory capacity for the production of just 25 models with build completion scheduled for May/June 2022.

The order book is now open and order reservations will be accepted on a first come, first served basis. Please note we have already received advance order reservations for 10 of the models. Once the batch is sold there is unlikely to be further manufacture of this particular model for many years, if at all. This relative scarcity protects your investment and keeps residual values high in the event you may wish to sell your model at some future time.
