Alexandra Docks purchased two, which were numbered 34 and 35, 3 years later they were acquired by the GWR as nos (666,667) they were given the Dia 68 but in 1923 they received some alterations at Swindon and were given the Diagram B13.They went to BR ownership and 667 lasted until 1954 and 666 until 1955.

In order to complete this kit you will require the following parts: -

Wheels and Axles – we supply Alan Gibson but can provide Markits, if they have them available. If you would prefer Markits wheels please ensure you let us know.

Crankpins - to suit the make of wheels.

Gearbox – High Level is our standard. Some kits do include a motor mounting etch which is suitable for Markits 38:1 gears (our stocks of gears are exhausted). Etch is available on request, while stocks last.

Motor – with the demise of Mashima motors we have sourced a suitable replacement SIX pole motor that has a special worm produced for the smaller diameter shaft, by Chris Gibbon of High Level. He has been suitably impressed by the motor performance.

The cost of our kit shows a saving compared to purchasing the parts individually.
