The J94 "Austerity"

These locomotives were designed for the British Government during WWII. The first, of the 377 built by 1947, was introduced in January 1943. Manufacture to this design continued through to 1962, primarily for private by users such as the National Coal Board (NCB).

The loco's were spread all around the LNER network. Its 0-6-0 wheel arrangement provided a locomotive which could negotiate tight curves, eminently suited to use on mining sites, factories and dock working. A few of the locomotives entered BR service, but the majority were purchased privately for industrial use. A number are in preservation and appear in a variety of particularly attractive liveries.

The Model.....

Our 5" gauge model is coal fired and features two inside cylinders. It is available ready-to-run and comes complete with a silver soldered copper boiler hydraulically tested to twice the working pressure of 90 psi. The model has an overall length of 33 inches and weighs approximately 45 kg.

It is available in maroon, blue, green and umber liveries.
