Product Description
Southern Railway engineer OVS Bulleid’s ‘Leader’ Class of 1949 was one of Britain’s most remarkable and forward-thinking steam locomotive designs.  Aiming to merge the advantages of diesels with steam technology, this unusual engine suffered from numerous teething troubles and was scrapped in 1951.  Nonetheless it was a brave attempt at extending the life of steam traction in Britain.  Fuller historical details can be found under the N Gauge Leader ‘body’ product.  

In developing this model, several components have been designed that together make a working motorised scratch aid for this remarkable engine.  Spread across four products, each is available separately, allowing for construction as designed where used collectively (see the below video) or use individually towards a scratch-built model.  

This scratch aid provides the bogie units for Bulleid’s experimental ‘Leader’ Class steam locomotive in N Gauge.  Also required to complete the model are:

Body shell (3D print, available separately)
End cab interiors and ashpan (3D print, available separately)
Internal bogie supports x2 (3D print, available separately)
Tomytec HM-01 Hakotesu Powered Motorized Chassis N scale (x2)
Graham Farish wagon wheels (x2)
0.5mm styrene strip or sheet (for packing shims where necessary)
Weight
Couplings
Buffers (holes pre-drilled)
Coal & crew

The video below provides advice for construction; as with the prototype, fine-tuning may be necessary!

Easily the largest and most unusual prototype I have yet developed, I hope you enjoy this unusual and eye-catching model.
