The LMS 3F 0-6-0T shunting engine. The Midland Railway had slowly evolved their 0-6-0 tank engines into a highly capable design suitabel for shutning, branch, local and even suburban passenger service. Henry Fowler added a Belpaire firebox and adopted the 3F Jinty as the LMS standard shunting and local service engine with 422 built between 1924 and 1931, including engines for the Somerset & Dorset Railway.
The next batch of Dapol Jinty models has been delayed due to COVID factory shutdowns. A revised release date will be announced once new production slots have been secured.
