Designed and manufactured by W.G.Bagnall of Stafford for the Port of Par railway this diminutive and distinctive design of 0-4-0 saddle tank locomotive will give OO modellers something very different for their scenes with a locomotive type used where restricted headroom is available due to bridges and other structures and suitable for tight curvature.
Whilst two locomotives were built for the Port of Par in 1937 and 1953 Bagnalls, as an industrial locomotive builder, manufactured products, both standard and narrow gauge, for an impressive number of private railways as well as the national railways from their Castle Engine Works with a design catalogue that customers could choose to purchase from with the ability to adapt standard designs to specific needs. It is with that premise in mind that other customers could have chosen to have locomotives built to this unique design finding use at sites where height restrictions were a consideration – and it just look superb!
Our exclusive model designed in consultation with Andy Hardy and Corwin Bainbridge of Rapido Trains UK sports a striking Oxford blue National Coal Board livery with white lining and lettering and red connecting rods using the same welded tank style as the 1953 built locomotive. As the NCB lettering has been kept to the cabside bunkers the design is suitable, and ideal, for modellers to customise with space on the saddle tank sides to add nameplates of choice from third party suppliers.
The model includes a highly-detailed cab interior, posable rear cab shutters, a diecast metal running plate, sprung buffers and bufferbeam inserts with scale couplings as an optional fit. The model features a coreless motor and flywheel running from plunger pickups, geared for slow running with a factory-fitted speaker for sound. For the DCC sound model, ESU have been working with Rapido and it will be fitted with an ESU Nano chip and a bespoke electronic setup to help with smooth running on DCC
Rapido have already established their credentials with making very small models that perform superbly and powerfully with their Liverpool and Manchester Railway ‘Lion’ so our model of this tiny Bagnall will not be troubled by the trainloads that modellers will run behind it. Of course, this is an ideal partner for our previously announced NCB 7-plank internal user wagons from Rapido.
Doesn’t it look gorgeous in these CAD renders?
Our model is available in both DCC-ready and DCC-sound forms priced at £139.95 and £249.95 plus postage respectively.
