This model is a Peckett B3 body-shell for the old Minitrix 0-6-0 Chassis as used in the N201 2F "Dock Tank" and 2913/2914 T3 "Little Donkey" locomotives.
The B3 0-6-0 design was introduced in 1933, replacing the earlier B2, also featuring a 10ft wheelbase and overall length just under 26ft, making it ideal for shunting heavy trains in restricted spaces such as coal mines and factories.
- This is a not an exact scale model, but is designed to capture the overall shape of the B3 whilst fitting over the tall Minitrix motor.
- The Minitrix buffers can be fitted to this model; push these out from behind the original buffer beams using the flat face of a screwdriver.
- If using the retaining bolt from the 2f Dock Shunter body, it should be shortened by approx 2mm so as not to foul the chassis base-plate.
