GWR County Tank No 2247 (RTR Details)

Introduced in 1905 these large wheeled "County" tanks were designed to supersede the much smaller 2-4-2T "36XX" class, primarily on city suburban services.

They were equipped with two-way water scoop equipment, this started to be removed in the early 1920s, along with the front bogie brakes.

The first built No 2221 was different from the rest with flush cab and tank sides and is not covered in the kit.

The manin difference was Nos 2221-40 were built with drop front ends, whereas 2241-50 had the more normal curved front end. During the early 1920s after heavy overhauls many of the class received an extended GWR style bunker. As with all steam locos, various members had subtle differences and it is strongly recommended you work from a photgraph.

 

When ordering please state which "front end" and bunker you require.

This is a multimedia kit with beam compensation etched in Nickel Silver with printed or cast brass parts and coupling rods. As per normal wheels, motor/gearbox, paint and transfers required to finish.

A selection of number plates are available. Shop
