OO Works to produce LSWR 330 Class Saddletank

The LSWR 330 class, known as "Saddlebacks", was a class of goods 0-6-0 saddle tank steam locomotives designed for the London and South Western Railway. 20 were constructed by Beyer, Peacock and Company between 1876 and 1882.

 

The class lasted in service until 1933. Most examples were scrapped, except for number 0335, which was sold to the Kent & East Sussex Railway where it survived until 1948.

OO Works models are hand-built ready-to-run locomotives produced in small batches. Made of metal, they are fitted with coreless motors and Romford wheels.
