Cauliflower, 18" Express Goods, Crested Goods 0-6-0. A BR, LMS ex LNWR class of locomotive.
Introduced in 1880 to the design of F W Webb for the London and North Western Railway the Cauliflower 0-6-0s were built for express goods work. 310 locomotives were built. When the LMS took over many of the class were modified to have Belpaire fireboxes rather than a round top. 75 of the class passed to BR, the last of the class was withdrawn in 1955.
Loco, chassis and body and tender, chassis and body etches for a Cauliflower 0-6-0 and 2000 gallon tender. For information on the tender see tender listing.
To build a model Cauliflower further parts will be needed; wheels, motor, gears, paint, transfers and for a LNWR locomotive number plates. The 2mm Association produces many parts which are suitable.
These etches have been reduced from a 4mm etch. The links below go to a pdf copy of the 4mm instructions however there are places where these instructions will not work for the 2mm etch. At these places the builder will need to use their own solutions. The 2mm Association has publications and magazine articles which may be of help.
