This is an N Gauge model of the 1830s Liverpool & Manchester Railway locomotive Planet’s tender, a replica now existing at the Manchester Museum of Science and Industry. Combined with the Planet or Tayleur locos (each separately available), this scratch aid enables an unpowered free-rolling model engine. Coupled to the motorised Liverpool and Manchester Railway coach or motorised flatbed (each separately available, plus free-rolling coaches and trucks), a fully working 'Era 1' N Gauge train can be created.
Necessary to Complete:
Graham Farish wagon wheels (x2)
Couplings (ELC couplings can be modified, but the method used is at the builder's discretion)
Weight (there is space under the tender and within the coal area)
Optional additional details to scratchbuild (at the builder's discretion):
I hope you enjoy this unusual and eye-catching model.
