Product Description
This is a 00 scale model of Liverpool and Manchester Railway locomotive No. 57 ‘Lion’.  Built in 1838, later used as a Liverpool stationary pumping engine, its restoration in 1928 led to ‘Lion’ becoming one of the oldest working steam engines in the world, last operating on Britain’s main line in the 1980s.  Most famously, she starred in the Ealing comedy ‘The Titfield Thunderbolt’, popularly considered one of the finest railway films of all time.  Today, ‘Lion’ is preserved in the Museum of Liverpool.   

This model originated as a jumbo-ised N Gauge engine, suitably altered to 00 operative tolerances and to fit proprietary parts (notably the tender wheelbase for motorising), enabling simple construction.  Many details not included in the original N Gauge version have been added in this 00 scratch aid to provide a ‘complete’ ready-to-paint model for beginners, capturing the charm of the prototype.  These can be replaced by more expert scratch-builders if desired.  The matching locomotive body is separately available.

(Note: various materials are provided, however, WSF and BSF will require more preparation for smooth painting that FUD and FED.)

 While most of the engine is provided, the following parts have been omitted due to fragility, clearances or the need to sand the printed model: 
• Rivet detailing
• Tender brakes (their hangar, however, is included)
• Loco-tender coupling (some drilled metal and pins will suffice)
• Coal and crew NB the tender has space for lead to be added (necessary for traction).   

The following additional parts need to be sourced separately to complete (web links given as examples only): 
• Screw-fit coupling (best to just glue/pin – mounting point included on the tender):
