N Gauge LMS Ivatt 2-6-2 Update

N Gauge LMS Ivatt 2-6-2 Update

We are delighted to be able to share the latest N Gauge LMS Ivatt 2-6-2  project artworks


The LMS Class 2 2-6-2 tank engines were designed by H. G. Ivatt and constructed between 1946 and 1952 to replace older locomotives.  This versatile class was built primarily for branch line duties for which their “Prairie” wheelbase was well suited. Ivatt also included several labour-saving features such as self-cleaning ashpans to improve operating economies.  Following an initial batch of ten locomotives built by the LMS, British Railways decided to enlarge the class and a further 120 examples were built.   

 During BR days, they were allocated to the LMR, SR and WR regions and were equally at home hauling passenger and goods services. The last member of the class was withdrawn in 1967, but four examples of this popular locomotive type have been preserved and all are presently operational.   

EP Currently under review by the design team


  • Highly detailed body with many separately added parts  
  • Expertly applied liveries 
  • Die-cast wheels 
  • Die-cast chassis 
  • Keyed axles (similar to the Dapol N Gauge A4/A3) to prevent quartering slippage 
  • The model is DCC ‘friendly’.  A PCB is located in the bunker and pickup and motor connections are terminated on this. It is a simple matter to replace this PCB with a wired ‘micro’ decoder by making 4 solder connections. 
  • DC only users do not need to make any changes. 
  • 3 pole can motor providing smooth slow speed running and a realistic top speed.
