2 diesel shunters – Class 03 and NBL 0-4-0 diesel-hydraulics
« on: February 22, 2015, 10:13:17 AM »
I'm currently working on the construction of 2 'modern image' locos - both diesel shunters. One is the BR Class 03 0-6-0 diesel-mechanical, and the other is a North British Loco 0-4-0 diesel hydraulic. Both were used widely on BR for a vast range of duties and lasted well into the BR 'blue' period.

As small, compact locos, they make ideal G3 candidates for use in and out of doors using battery radio control.

One task has been to acquire general arrangement drawings so that accurate models can be made appropriate to the scale and I can now make these available to G3 modellers as follows:

1. BR Swindon and Doncaster
0-6-0 diesel-mechanical
D2000-D2199 / D2370-D2399
Class03
03004-0339
1 sheet size A0, £10 + £2 p&p

For details of the 03 see here:

2. North British Loco 0-4-0 diesel-hydraulic
11708-11719
D2708-D2780
2 sheets size A0, £6 per sheet + £2 p&p

3. North British Loco 0-4-0 diesel-hydraulic
D2900-D2913
2 sheets size A0, £6 per sheet + £2 p&p

For details of the NBL locos see the following:

Also, for the Class 03, accurate G3 versions of the 3ft 7in wheels and jackshaft crankshaft together with split axles are available from Mark Wood. These wheels could also be used (at a push) with the NBL diesel-hydraulics.
