Hornby OO WC&PR 4 Stroudley A1X Class Terrier 0-6-0T SR-style Lined Green R3528

Hornby Railways OO Gauge R3528 Weston, Clevedon & Portishead Railway 4, ex-LBSCR Stroudley A1X Terrier 0-6-0T Southern-style Lined Green WC&PR Lettering.
Expected June 2017

These small 0-6-0 tank engines were built by the LB&SCR, their exceptional power for such a tiny locomotive earned them the name 'terriers' from the crews. Light enough to traverse many minor routes and branchlines barred to larger engines the Victorian terriers were still at work long after nationalisation. Many were purchased by light railway companies, proving ideal locomotives for their lightly-built lines with a significant improvement in power and economy over earlier engines.

The Weston Clevedon & Portishead Railway purchased 2 terriers from the Southern during the inter-war period, this is the second locomotive, numbered 4. This engine was overhauled by the Southern before delivery to the Somerset light railway painted in the then current SR lined green livery. No 4 was relettered at Clevedon shed and served until the closure of the WC&P early in WW2 due to the loss of the lines' daytrip holiday trade. No 4 then passed to the Great Western in part settlement of payments owed to the larger company, mostly working around the Bristol area until withdrawn early in 1948.

Heljan OO 9001 Metropolitan Railway 9 John Milton Bo-Bo Metropolitan Vickers Electric Locomotive Metropolitan Railway Livery

Another interesting locomotive model from Heljan in the form of the Metropolitan Railways' later Metropolitan-Vickers electric locomotives. Built for express services on the Amersham line where the Metropolitan competed with the Great Central Railways' outer suburban services these locomotives passed into the ownership of the LPTB (London Transport) in 1933. Following replacement by multiple-unit trains in the early 1960s LT retained several locomotives for shutning and engineering work. Two survive today, 5 John Hampden displayed in the LT museum at Covent Garden and 12 Sarah Siddons. Retained initially as a test locomotive to assess the performance and degradation rates of composite brake blocks under working conditions No12 survived to be recognised as a valuable heritage item and has been overhauled for railtour use, including being made suitable for working on the Southern 'third rail' network.

Heljan locomotives are designed with a heavy diecast chassis powered by a central placed motor with drive to all axles, providing plenty of train-pulling capacity. The bodyshell is finely detailed, nicely depicting the bodyside panelling and ventilation grilles.

This model of number 9 is finished in the later Metropolitan Railway livery as modified with the company name replaced by the nameplates. The correct pre-war style of nameplate with decorative ends is fitted.

Heljan OO LT 12 Sarah Siddons ex-Metropolitan Railway Bo-Bo Metropolitan-Vickers Electric Locomotive Heritage Metropolitan Livery (Current) 9008

Heljan OO 9008 London Transport 12 Sarah Siddons ex-Metropolitan Railway Bo-Bo Metropolitan Vickers Electric Locomotive. Finished in Current Metropolitan Heritage Livery
Second batch of Metropolitan Railway Metropolitan-Vickers electric locomotives announced 2016.

Ex-Metropolitan Railway locomotive 12 is one of the 'lucky survivors' from the end of the locomotive haulage era. Seeking to find alternatives to dust-producing cast iron brake shoes London Transport engineers looked for a test vehicle for carrying out controlled tests on new brake pad materials. Former Metropolitan locomotive 12 was soon to become redundant from  shunting newly delivered multiple unit cars and offered a self-contained and quite heavy traction unit. Modified to reduce the number of braked axles for stress-testing purposes the locomotive become the engineers' ideal solution!
Still working into the 1980s, 12 Sarah Siddons was requested for railtour service and became recognised as a valuable operational heritage locomotive. Placed under the control of the London Transport Museum and overhauled at Acton works 12 Sarah Siddons was rewired to more modern standards and adapted to allow operation on the BR Southern region 750vDC third rail system (LT uses a 630vDC four-rail system), allowing the locomotive to represent London Transport at depot open days and haul railtours on the third rail network.

This model presents 12 Sarah Siddons in current condition, as working during the recent Metropolitan 150th anniversary events.

Heljan locomotives feature a heavy diecast chassis powered by a centrally placed motor driving all axles, providing plenty of train-pulling capacity. The bodyshell is finely detailed, nicely depicting the bodyside panelling and ventilation grilles.

102 Janus locomotives were built between 1956 and 1965 mostly for the British steel industry, but other customers included Imperial Chemical Industries (12), Port of London Authority (10) and National Coal Board (7) with 3 locomotives exported. One locomotive was tested by British Rail as a possible alternative/replacement for class 08 shunters and in 2008 23 were still in industrial service with 7 preserved.

The GVH model is bring produced by Oxford using original engineering drawings, trade publicity and published histories, backed up with site visits to view and measure surviving locomotives. GVH are indebted to the archive departments and support of current and previous company owners of Janus locomotives in completing this task.
The model has been designed to incorporate many fine details of the original locomotives and also offer key detail variations made during their long operational ownership.
Permission has been obtained from a variety of famous British companies who owned and operated these locos to reproduce their branding on the models, though some brand owners have applied restrictions to the production run quantity.

GV2015  British Steel No5 Janus 0-6-0 Diesel
The Port of London Authority (or PLA) were large purchasers of the Janus. Using them to replace many steam locomotives across their dock system. The dock system overall totalled 95 miles of running lines stretching along the Thames. Our locomotive represents the Janus in its brand new delivered livery
Packs of wagons have also been commissioned from Oxford Rail to match each of the locomotives with GV6015 being a pack of 3 PLA 7 plank open mineral wagons.

Hornby OO United Steel Company 22 Hunslet J94 Austerity 0-6-0ST Saddle Tank Shunting Engine R3466

Hornby Railways OO Gauge R3466 United Steel Company Hunslet J94 Austerity 0-6-0ST Saddle Tank Shutning Engine Red Livery

Expected April 2016

Developed from Hunslets' earlier series of 0-6-0 heavy shunting engine designs the Austerity design 0-6-0ST saddle tank engine was produced for the War Department during WW2. These engines are similar on size to some of the shunting engines used by the mainline companies, but were of more modern design, simple to build and maintain and, most important for industrial operators, very robust. New engines to this design were ordered by the coal and iron & steel industries into the 1950s.
After WW2 the LNER purchased a number of ex-WD austerity engines, allocating class J94 for these engines.

This model is finished as a Hunselt austerity tank engine in the red livery of United Steel Companies, a conglomerate of steel making and associated companies, including collieries, formed in 1918 and lasting until nationalisation.

Hornby OO Lord Phil Hunslet Austerity 0-6-0ST Industrial Shunting Engine Lined Green R3533

Hornby Railways OO Gauge R3533 Lord Phil Hunslet Austerity 0-6-0ST Industrial Shunting Engine Lined Green
Expected May 2017

Developed from a late 1930s design for a heavy industrial shunting engine the Hunslet company received orders from the War Department for a standard design of basic and robust shunting engine for wartime service. The locomotive was to be as simple as possible for ease of maintenance and built using the minimum of materials or specialist methods.
The 'austerity' 0-6-0 saddle tank engines proved highly successful. Having been built with 'branchline' type service in mind to move short trains around large depots after the end of the war near-new locomotives were snapped up by the coal mining and iron/steel companies and new 'Austerity' tank engines were being ordered into the 1950s.
Needing a number of new shunting engines the LNER purchased 75 'Austerities' in 1946, instead of building engines to their own design, leading to the entire type being known widely by the LNER class of J94.

In addition to widespread industrial service around 70 of these engines have been preserved, with many of them active every year.

Hornby OO Sentinel 19 4-wheel Diesel Hydraulic Industrial Shunting Engine Green with Wasp-Stripe Side Skirts R3576

Hornby Railways OO Gauge R3576 Sentinel 19 4 wheel Diesel Hydraulic Industrial Shunting Locomotive Green

The large fleet of small industrial shunting engines has always lacked a good, detailed model. Hornby have made a good choice of prototype with this 4-wheel Sentinel diesel locomotive, a type which proved popular with industrial users, many large organizations operating sizable fleets.
Due to the consideration by the designers for ease of operation and safety for the crew Sentinels have remained in service until recent years, often only being replaced by newer locomotives from Sentinels' successors developed from the Sentinel design. Many Sentinels have since found new homes on heritage railways.


This model is DCC Ready. Hornby have a special 4-pin decoder unit for these models available from their customer care department. Tel. 01843 233525. The service sheet lists part X9659 for the decoder.
We regret that we are not able to supply the DCC decoder for this locomotive, Hornby Hobbies have declined to supply these to retailers.
