Offering a new Midland Class 1F 00 gauge example by “Bachmann Model Railways”. This locomotive comes complete with all paperwork and packaging!
The Midland Railway 1377 Class is a class of steam locomotive. They were introduced in 1878 by Samuel W. Johnson based on an earlier 1874 design. Up to 1891, 185 were built: 165 by Derby Works and the last 20 by the Vulcan Foundry.
Most were built without a rear to the cab and only a short cab roof, hence their nickname “half-cabs”, though about 40 were built with full cabs. Originally they were built with round-topped fireboxes, but many later received Belpaire fireboxes. They were given the power classification 1F.
One of the Staveley engines, 1418 (renumbered 1708 by the Midland Railway in 1907, and 41708 by British Railways), has survived to preservation at Barrow Hill Engine Shed.
