Hatton's OO Gauge Andrew Barclay 14” & 16” 0-4-0ST

 

H4-AB14-006_announcement.jpg

 

Andrew Barclay Sons & Co. were a locomotive building company based in Kilmarnock, Scotland. They became known for producing their standardised saddle tank locomotives, mainly for industrial use. They had a small selection of options available to prospective buyers such as alternative cabs, cylinders, chimneys and tanks.

 

The most numerous type produced were the 14” & 16” versions, referring to the diameter of the cylinders. Thousands of 0-4-0s were built by Andrew Barclay starting in the late 1800s. Many survived longer than mainline steam under BR, with some still running in the late 1970s. Over 100 are believed to be preserved across the UK.

 

We are producing a total of eight 14” versions and four 16” versions in a wide variety of liveries and including the variations that would have originally been available from Andrew Barclay themselves.

 

Variations Include:

  • Two different cab front windows

  • Four different cab rear windows

  • Two types of buffer shanks

  • Two types of buffers

  • Tank steps (where appropriate)

  • Lubricators (where appropriate)

  • Two different front spring heights

  • Two different water tank heights

Model Specifications:

  • RP25 wheel profile

  • 6-pin DCC socket in tanks

  • 5-pole motor

  • All wheel pickup

  • NEM coupling pockets

  • Chemically blackened wheels

  • Separately fitted handrails

  • Separately fitted drain cock detailing and oil lubricators

  • Fully detailed and painted cab interior

 

These locomotives are being produced exclusively by Hatton’s and are available to pre-order now for £99 each on www.hattons.co.uk/barclay.

 

Variations Available to Order:

OO Gauge Andrew Barclay 14”/16” 0-4-0ST

 

post-1-0-08005100-1504695328_thumb.jpg

 

After years in the wilderness industrial locomotives are the new black with increasing interest being shown by manufacturers and customers alike. Hatton’s announcement of the small Barclay four-coupled tank is a clever move as it is of a prototype which had a high degree of standardisation but over an extended period of time, widely distributed to a variety of industries all around the country and also for export. Built in Kilmarnock the locomotives certainly found favour in Scotland the North of England but by no means exclusively.
 
As with the P Class we have had chance to test the running EP sample capably managing a typical load of twelve 16T mineral wagons around a test track including the 1 in 30 gradients. Again, the performance and smoothness of running is exemplary.
 
Many tooling variations have been accommodated to portray different models; two different cab front windows, four different cab rear windows, BR numberplates on smokebox where appropriate, two types of buffer shanks and buffers, tank steps and lubricators where appropriate, two different front spring heights and two different water tank heights.
 
Twelve different liveries and variations will be available at the time of release at the beginning of 2018, priced at £99.00 - customers can pre-order models now at hattons.co.uk/barclay

A couple of NCB Scottish Area Barclays shall certainly find a home with me!

Pleasing to see delivery dates are not too far away.

Well chuffed. Order for Katie gone in. A big bonus it has a 5 pole motor and no floppy rods (I hope).

Thanks to Mr Hattons more ways to take my money. I think I have to order a little Katie.... why I have no idea...

Seriously though it is a hearty congratulations to Hattons as these will sell like hot cakes. If the Hornby Peckett is anything to go buy... oops Freudian slip there!

Is there a particular version suitable (to be modified/repainted if needed) that is suitable for a period around 1900-1920?

I'm referring more to the cab/tank variations than the liveries as it looks (to me having a quick read) like they are mostly 1950s onwards

Always been a sucker for industrial steam, particularly with wasp stripes. Three pre-ordered

Given the silhouette elsewhere tempting thoughts of a Midland machine, I had my hopes up there; but the AB tanks are so much better! So many bad ideas and potential micro layouts...Better still, the Barclays don't really carry the rounded 'cute' factor of the red box Peckett. This could prove expensive!

You could always get in touch with Modelu who I'm sure will be happy to get you scanned in :)

Yes - Hattons are commissioning it directly from China. More detail in the video.

 

Unless you want the name of the individual assembling each one, in which case you're on your own finding that out...  :onthequiet:

I did the reverse: two P's and one Barclay pre-ordered! SECR and Bluebell for the P class, and a Caledonian Andrew Barclay. The latter will lose its CR and crest to match up closely with the Hornby H&P Peckett.

The EPs all look good to me.

That type of cab was from the mid 1920s.

 

The oldest listed there is the preserved Caledonian Railway liveried one that was built in 1926.

Thanks, that confirms my thinking that it was the oldest one there.

Is there much difference to an earlier cab?

Earlier cabs had curved side cut outs like this.

For those of us dilettantes (an effete East Anglian here, rather than the more traditional "effete Southerner") who like the "cute" factor, this is a tad disappointing (I was hoping for a spectacularly-cute Bristol-manufactured industrial next!), but I am glad people are pleased - and that there is some Scottish love, too.
