7S-026-012 3F ‘Jinty’ 47680 BR Late Crest
The London Midland and Scottish Railway (LMS) Fowler 3F 0-6-0T represents the apex in the development of the Midland Railway's six-coupled tank engines. The locomotive design was based on rebuilds by Henry Fowler of the Midland Railway 2441 Class introduced in 1899 by Samuel Waite Johnson. A total of 422 Jinties were built between 1924 and 1931. The first 49 locomotives did not have the distinctive keyhole sand box fillers in the tank sides. The Dapol model will be of locomotives that did have the key hole. Also featured in the Dapol range is the push pull fitted version of the locomotive. A total of 9 of the class survive into preservation with 47406 providing the sound recording for those modellers who wish to have this feature. The locomotive is now affectionately referred to as a Jinty, a name that appears to be one bestowed by rail enthusiasts as there is no evidence of the name being used by the men who operated these locomotives.

See Note Below about this model
It is with regret that we must inform you that there is a small livery error on one of the models. Unfortunately it was noticed too late to make any changes to the models being shipped. A small cream square has been identified on the bottom corner of one of the tank sides that should not be there.
We have decided that the most efficient way of dealing with this, and making the discrepancy in the decoration more palatable, is to offer a 20% discount off the recommended retail price of this model livery. A full warranty is still offered with these models with the aforementioned decorative defect being the only exception. All of our stockist have been informed of this decision
Models with this livery now have the following RRP: DCC Ready – £186.30, DCC Fitted – £217.35 & DCC Sound Fitted – £371.42
