Description

BACHMANN 31-432  1:76 OO SCALE  BR 41708 Midland Railway 1F 0-6-0 Tank Engine Black Late Crest  DCC Ready

A detailed model of the first of the Midland Railway Jinty 0-6-0 side tank shunting engines. Designed for hardy Victorian enginemen the cab did not have a back sheet, so the interior can easily be seen and is fully detailed.

The Midland 1F engines had very long lives, being built from 1878 and and still serving until 1966, almost the end of steam!
Originally intended for shunting work these engines were quickly found to be ideal as general purpose branch line engines and could be found working passenger and goods trains on branches all over the former Midland Railway network. Gloucester based engines were well-known for the 'Dursley Donkey' serving Dursley and the Lister factory. One of these engines is preserved.

This model is finished as BR 41708, the surviving 1F, with the later lion holding wheel crest. Era 5 1957-1966.

DCC Ready
