Average Rating: Not Rated

This beautiful little loco was purchased by the PD&SWJR from Hawthorne-Leslie in 1908. The loco was numbered No.3 and was named "A.S.Harris" It was acquired by the LSWR for 3 weeks and numbered 756 only to be transferred at the grouping to the Southern Railway. It carried the same number until 1926/7 when it was given an "E" prefix. The SR painted it in Maunsell Dark Olive and it was fully lined. It ran from Bere Alston to Callington until the SR 02's displaced it from its duties.
It then spent time at Ashford, Eastleigh and then Clapham Junction. It ended its days at Stewarts Lane working the United Dairies Milk Depot until it was scrapped in 1951. It never acquired its BR number  of 30756.
Several other examples of this type were found on a number of Industrial railways.
The kit has exquisite lost wax brass castings which cover most of the alterations that were made during its lifetime. There are also etched nameplates included in the kit.
The motorising kit has a Mashima 12/20 motor, a High Level Gearbox and a choice of Markits or Alan Gibson wheels. The kit has spacers for "00" or "EM" gauge, however, it is also suitable for P4.
There are comprehensive instructions with exploded diagrams and a number of photographs for reference.
