Ruston & Hornsby 0-6-0DE announced in OO by Kernow, Heljan & Model Rail.

Recommended Posts

That's good news for WR modellers. I had one of the Trix-Twin ones, where the wheel flanges were so deep, they hit the rail fixings on Triang track.

As you say FC great news for WR modelers, the Trix one was 3.8mm to the foot I guess there was a Qs kit I think and the Judith Edge kit of course.

You'll have plenty of time to build it before the RTR version comes out.....

Are Kernow etc. doing both types of cab? PWM650 had the original cab as modelled by JE. The later locos had and a sloping cab front as shown in the photos above.

Quite possibly as it also says industrial versions will be coming from Heljan but aren't announced yet. I believe the industrials were also different.

Model Rail say the tooling will cover PWM651-654. The pioneer PWM650 built in 1953 had smaller wheels and smaller rear cab windows.

No you didn't, we have never done this one, our Rustons have the earlier vertical cab front.

Anyone know what sort of dates these were painted all over yellow, here is a picture by Keith Miller of 97652 at Laira in January 1987.

 

 

 

1115-008

 

and another picture from Ian on Flickr at Swindon on 2nd April 1983.

97653 under maintenance, Swindon

 

Looks like I've answered my own question the picture below by Brian Danials on Flickr 97653 in new yellow livery at Swindon 23-6-81.

This was on my wishlist too. Was tempted to buy the kit but figured I would not have the time.

By 1992, 97650 was preserved at Lincoln, 97652 had been scrapped in 1990 and 97653 was withdrawn at Reading.  97651 was working at Radyr then Cathays around this time and 97654 was based at Reading and later Old Oak Common where it was used on works trains for the Paddington remodelling/electrification scheme circa 1994.

 

For anyone interested in their allocation history, this book is well worth getting https://irsshop.co.uk/epages/c06e4627-fbe4-483c-833b-6f5529d3cffe.sf/en_GB/?ObjectPath=/Shops/c06e4627-fbe4-483c-833b-6f5529d3cffe/Products/0128S

I was surprised to learn that these were built specifically for Departmental duties. Does anyone know why they didn't just buy a Class 03/04 instead?

They were not traffic locomotives so the purchasing department got to choose what to buy!

Oh wow, great choice.

Weird little shunters that always seemed knackered.

 

I recall seeing these at Swindon, but also one at Reading that was perpetually in the middle of a line of wagons and never seemed to move !

 

Great choice

Probably only used on posessions and taken out in the middle of the rake of wagons going on site.

I remember seeing one so marshalled at Reading trundling steadily through the station, too late, alas, for a photo.

2767 & 2774 worked ok, as I recall, until they went to Manchester Victoria.

 

maybe if Kernow see how good they look next to a couple of Hydraulics they might consider them next...
