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

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

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!

Can I get the prototype figure to go with Barclay No 10?

 

 

 

:-)

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

 

Cheers,

Two Barclays and a P class ordered, looking forward to them, 5-pole motor too!!

Cheers from Oz,

Peter C.

 

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.

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.
