Product Description
General A0 range overview.  Product descriptions below this...

The A0 is a 'what if' 4-6-2 Pacific locomotive design that was as far as we know drawn by Sir Nigel Gresley in 1915 and a couple of known redrafts afterwards.  A0 is not a real designation but for identification I coined it years ago when helping with the formation of two essays on the A0 and the possible development of it into other rebuild combinations.  I personally believe along with others that it may also form the basis of certain Railway Series characters.

For an in depth explanation of what the A0 is with photographs please check out the following link...
... and please also check out the aforementioned essay links WITHIN the link for a full understanding.

The wheelbase of the A0 1915 drawing is...
6'3" + 5' 3" + 7' 0" + 7' 0" + 8' 0" - However the Gresley A1 is...
6'3" + 5' 6" + 7' 3" + 7' 3" + 9' 6"

For this reason the SCC A0 range has been designed instead to fit the A1 wheelbase so they can still fit  RTR and kit chassis.'

The SCC A0's have been designed around three different Hornby Gresley A1's (bodies & chassis) to ensure as much compatability as possible between them.

What is offered is full locomotive body shells and also as another option the shells split down into kit components so you can combine them into various combinations yourself, even more combinations than the full shell options will be possible this way. 

For the kit route the parts will be easier to prepare and clean the surfaces for painting, also if you order just a running plate for example then you could use your own A1 body and cut out the relavant bits to fit the plates, used this way the items can be used for kit bashing purposes.

Certain configurations will require you changing cylinders and valve gear, or at least modifying them in various ways but the items in question will point you to the suggested changes in the product descriptions.

Product Description...

This is the A0 - A1 Backhead Controls LHD.  A representation of the later Left Hand Drive Backhead Controls for the Gresley A1 Pacific locomotive.  It has been designed for the Tapered Gresley A1 Boilers and as such is not suitable for the A0 1915 Parallel boiler.  It is the same as the RHD just reveresed.

Being loose from the rest of the locomotive painting it and adding extra details will be much easier.
