An urgent need for narrow gauge locos to operate the lines behind the trenches in WW1 led the Railways Operating Division (ROD) to source locos from America as well as Britain. Both Baldwin and Alco produced designs and the Baldwin 4-6-0 pannier tank was made in huge numbers. Dispersal sales after the war saw them scattered around the globe with a number ending up in the UK on lines such as the Welsh Highland, Ashover, Snailbeach and Glyn Valley Tramway, many having been acquired by Colonel Stephens for his narrow gauge empire!
The model is internally gas fired and is constructed from etched brass and stainless steel. The model is only available in manual control version. The standard colour is satin black. Versions for 32mm and 45mm gauges are available. As the gas capacity is larger than the water capacity, a boiler top up system will be supplied. The boiler is fitted with a water gauge glass. The locomotive comes fitted with Accucraft's standard square headed chopper couplings. The wheels are insulated as standard. The cab roof lifts up and tilts sideways to give easy access to the cab interior.
Versions available, subject to production batch:
S19-1 WD Baldwin for 45mm (1 gauge)
S19-2 WD Baldwin for 32mm (0 gauge)
