A brand new 00 gauge example especially developed by “Hornby Model Railways” as part of their latest DCC Ready series. This Southern Wainwright H Class is being offered in pristine boxed condition. Complete with all paperwork and accessories model reference R3540.
The H Class was Harry Wainwright’s solution to updating the ageing 2-4-0 and 0-4-2T stock running on the South Eastern and Chatham Railway at the turn of the 20th century and was very much a development of Kirtley’s R Class and subsequent R1 design.
Sixty six locomotives were built by Ashford Works, with No.540 being the first engine delivered on November 7, 1904 and No.184 the last, in April 1915.
