Armstrong-Whitworth 7059-7068 0-6-0DE

Built by Armstrong-Whitworth for the LMS in 1935, these ten shunters were powered by a Sulzer engine and Crompton-Parkinson transmission through a jackshaft drive. All ten were requisitioned by the War Department during WWII and went to the Egypt, France, The Netherlands and Belgium,   Only 7063 returned to Britain on the Longmoor Military Railway as No.47.

Mercian Models produce a kit of this class and the photograph shows my partially completed model. The kit is somewhat confusing as it appears the kit has undergone some modifications and replacement parts over the years. Unfortunately these are all supplied in the box and the unclear instructions make it difficult to work out which bits to use. However, I am slowly getting through this kit and motorisation is not far off!
