Peckett E Class 0-4-0ST for Industrial Railways, the GWR and preservation.
Peckett built 763 standard gauge tanks of which 56 were Class E tanks. They were supplied to industrial users and main line railways. Peckett engines had a distinctive appearance and were easy to spot. Several Peckett tanks are preserved.
The class E 0-4-0ST are well known from their use in Swansea docks. They were first supplied in 1906 to the Swansea Harbour Trust. The SHT was taken over by the Great Western Railway and the GWR became part of British Railways. Through out this time the Peckett engines remained in use at the docks. The last engine to work
there was withdrawn in 1963.
Kit is etched brass with tab and slot location of parts. Kit includes alternative parts i.e. wing plates, to model the differences between engines. It also includes parts to build the kit for 2mm scale.
