The ’00’ Works have produced a number of small batches of hand built Ready to Run locomotives including a variety of Southern classes, including most recently the LSWR 0330 classex London and South Western Drummond K10 4-4-0 and  ex LSWR Drummond D15 4-4-0 and also ex London Brighton and South Coast Railway Marsh I3 4-4-2 Tanks and They also produced, before Hornby, a brass Devon Belle Observation car which graces Fisherton Sarum.
The ’00’works have announced that they are to produce three versions of the ex London and South Western Railway Adams A12 class of 0-4-2 locomotives. There were eventually 90 members of the A12 class built in two batches, the first thirty  between 1887 and 1889 at  Nine Elms works had screw reversers,  with a further 60, with lever reversers, between 1892 and 1895 with 40 being built by the contractors Neilson & Co. They were known as Adams “Jubilees” as the first built in 1887 being the 50th year Jubilee of the Queen Victoria’s reign.
There were a number of details differences, as well the reverser between members of the class that included sanding arrangements, chimney’s (two types of stove pipe and later cast Drummond type) and tenders (small or large 3,000 gallon or 3,300 gallon). They were based at Nine Elms, Guildford, Basingstoke, Yeovil, Exmouth Junction, Strawberry Hill, Salisbury, Wadebridge and Plymouth, they proved successful and popular. Despite the great success of these 90 engines they were the only ones of 0-4-2 wheel arrangement that were ever built by or for the LSWR.

Withdrawals started in 1928 but four of the Neilson engines 618, 627, 629 & 636 survived into British Railways ownership but only just! One of these, 629, was one of seven locomotives withdrawn in January 1939 but reprieved in October of that year due to the increased demand for locomotives following the outbreak of war in September 1939. None of these four survivors carried a British Railways number. There was one other to exist longer in departmental use supplying steam to Eastleigh boiler yard as DS3191 (Ex No. 612) until November 1951.

The initial CAD 3D render published by 00 Works.

A12 No. 528 in SR Olive Green livery is turned on shed at Fisherton Sarum. She is built from a Nu-Cast kit

Initially three versions are being produced, due for production this year, with pre-orders available to be taken via their website:

  • LSWR Holly Green Lined No. 361, although the class would have been in LSWR passenger green liveries (Holly green was an LSWR Goods loco livery), that she would have carried until March 1925 when she gained SR Olive Green livery.
  • SR Olive Green No. 598 as she ran between between May 1925 and July 1934 if she has the ‘E’ prefix or between July 1934 and c1941 if without ‘E’ prefix (not confirmed at time of writing)
  • SR/BR Black [Sunshine] No. 629 as she carried c1941 and withdrawal in December 1948 (she had originally been withdrawn in January 1939 but reinstated in October the same year).

The will no doubt follow the earlier releases and will comprise of an all Metal cast body and fitted with a Coreless motor. The A12 will also come fitted with slimline Bachmann/Hornby type couplings which can be unscrewed to replace if required. Delivery is expected Summer 2021.

Previously the A12 was only available as a Nu-Cast white metal kit and a I have couple that could often be seen on Fisherton Sarum.

Past Southern locomotive produced by the ’00’ Works, some of which have since been produced or announced by the major manufacturers, has in addition to the 0330, K10,D15 and I3 mentioned above, included: N15, 700, C, H,  E4 and Adams Radial classes. The level of detail of these models has steadily improved over time, although is still not as high as we seem from the likes of Hornby or Bachmann, they have in the past filled gaps in the market and they should be applauded for taking on another LSWR / Southern prototype.

I am far from being a ‘vlogger’ or a ‘youTuber’ and you will never get to watch me ‘unbox’ anything but I have often added video clips to illustrate posts throughout the site, I have now added a new page where I have collated some of these videos on one page with links where appropriate to the original post.

The new page can be found either here or by clicking on the video menu button above.

I have also added a Gallery of some of my favourite pictures from through my blog which can be found either here or by clicking on the Gallery menu button above.

As many of us currently have a little extra time on our hands, enjoy the content, relax and stay safe!

As I posted earlier this week I usually attend and assist with the running of, the RM Web South West Area Group members day held nr. Taunton.

This year we are unable to do so but this has not deterred the organisers from marking the event but this year it will be in a ‘virtual’ form on RMweb. with pictures, video and chat from participants past and present to raise money for the NHS Charities Together Covid-19 Appeal who are working with NHS England and their member NHS Charities on a nationally coordinated response to the difficulties affecting us all.

The event is taking place this weekend and is hosted on RMweb. At the time of posting over £6000 has already been raised or the NHS Charities Together Covid-19 Appeal!

I have already posted content about Canute Road Quay in the layouts section, with a few new videos, including the one below, the full post, pictures and videos can seen here.

I’ve also posted about Fisherton Sarum with some pictures and a video here. So two layouts at the same show, that’s unusual…

Regular readers will know that this time of year I usually attend and assist with the running of, the RM Web South West Area Group members day held nr. Taunton. This year we are unable to do so but this has not deterred the organisers from marking the event but this year it will be in a ‘virtual’ form on RMweb. with pictures, video and chat from participants past and present to raise money for the NHS Charities Together Covid-19 Appeal who are working with NHS England and their member NHS Charities on a nationally coordinated response to the difficulties affecting us all.

The event will take place in virtual form on Sunday 26th April and will be hosted on RMweb.

Layout organiser, and friend, Stu Hilton of Truro, said “It’s a shame we cannot bring everyone together in our usual way this year but we are trying to do the next best thing and bring modellers together online and capture some of the atmosphere and great modelling that would have been on show”.

I look forward to posting content myself during the day about Fisherton Sarum and Canute Road Quay, both layouts have been exhibited at the event in previous years.

Some participants will post updates on their preparations ahead of the event and memories of previous days out together on the Saturday before the main event. We will host a railway-themed ‘pub quiz’ on the Saturday evening in lieu of everyone getting together for a pint in a local pub. On the day there will be plenty of content and chat from participants, a virtual ‘bring and buy’ to raise funds and a ‘virtual kitchen’ where readers can purchase virtual versions of the infamous pasties, pies and cake. The event will finish on the Sunday afternoon with a fundraising ‘virtual’ raffle and auction all to raise money for NHS Charities Together.

So join in over the weekend, if you are not already a member of the RM Web community,  simply sign up its free!
