OTHER LNER TANKS
Ex WD 0-6-0 J94
This loco was purchased for me at an Exhibition by my late wife. It was an un-decorated austerity loco. I have added a hopper bunker, extra handrails, foot steps etc to represent a BR loco.
Quite a bit of work was required to square up the chassis to ensure smooth running. Loco chip ESU Loksound V4. Sound from Digitrains. A WD version was maintained at 31A for working the military cemetary sidings.
Ex LNER C12 4-4-2T
The Saffron Walden Branch was worked by Class G5 tanks with an unique air operated push/pull set.When the set was withdrawn and replaced by a standard vacuum operated set, Class C12 67360 and a sister engine were shedded at 31A Cambridge to work it. They themselves were replaced by push/pull fitted class N7's. 67360 did not go far just to the end of the line at Kings Lynn. The model is fitted with a cannon motor,multi-stage gearbox and an ESU 3.5 chip
