CSP21 Fox Walker 0-6-0ST GWR 1331 (ex Whitland & Cardigan Railway no 3)

Fox Walker & Co of Bristol (The predecessors of Peckett & Co) built this loco in 1877 with the works No 340. When new it went to the Cardigan & Whitland railway who gave it the number 3. In 1926 the engine was returned to GWR stock receiving No 1331 and was taken to Swindon for rebuilding. She was fitted with longer frames to accommodate a GWR bunker and an enclosed cab. She worked Weymouth Quay until her departure in 1935. She also worked at Reading Signal Works, Pontypool and Gloucester. She was at Swindon until 1941 and then moved to Oswestry. She was rebuilt again at Wolverhampton in 1946 and eventually withdrawn in 1950. No. plates are included.


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 CORELESS 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.
