2" GAUGE ~ 17/32" - 1' SCALE

The 9F Class of Locomotives were inyroduced to British railways in 1954 and was a re-design of the very successful wartime Austerity 2-10-0. Equally at home on heavy freight or express passenger, these locomotives were the epitome of steam power on British railways. To date five of this class preserved with "Evening Star" being the only named locomotive of the Class.

A super scale model with flangelss centre drivers and steam brakes to enable it to negotiate relative tight track curves.
