This second batch of Dapol GWR Churchward 43xx mogul models replicates the early production engines, numbers 4321 through to 5383, constructed between 1913 and 1920. These engines had inside cylinder steam pipes from new, but as cylinder blocks wore out many received new cylinder castings to the later design with outside steam pipes. The locomotives also started out with tapered buffers but many received later parallel buffers, as when overhauls were being completed the works simply fitted with the next suitable set of overhauled buffers! These details are replicated on each engine modelled based on photographic records.

General Specification
Many original GA drawings were used in the development of these accurate and authentic models.
The locomotive has a diecast chassis with a five pole motor driving the rear wheels. To add compensation the centre driving wheels are sprung, the front pony truck is also sprung and operates on a cam so the model will negotiate radius 2 curves with ease.
To portray these locomotives over their lifetime many details have been drawn up as follows :

  • Churchward Taper Buffers
  • Collett Straight Shank Buffers
  • Smokebox with/without cylinder steam pipes
  • Tall vacuum pipe for early versions
  • Lower vacuum pipe for later period
  • Tall safety valve cover
  • Short safety valve cover
  • Smoke box top mounted lamp bracket
  • Smoke box door mounted lamp bracket for B.R. period
  • Smoke box number plate for B.R. period
  • Hinged fall plate
  • The tender is a standard Churchward 3,500 gallon type

Technical Specification
  • A slide in PCB offers simple, tool-free installation of a NEXT-18 DCC decoder and a no-solder speaker connection. This board slides through the smoke box door and connects directly to the locomotive mother board.
  • The tender to locomotive drawbar includes reliable electrical connections moulded within the close-coupling push-fit coupling. This eliminates wired plugs and unreliable wiper style connections.
  • The locomotive and tender have electrical pick-up on all driving and tender wheels
  • An optional base reflex speaker can be fitted into the tender. An audio frequency filter is integrated within the main locomotive PCB to ensure each speaker reproduces within it's ideal frequency range.
  • Firebox glow synchronised with sound (factory fitted models only)
  • Dapol’s proven slow speed mechanism and high torque motor
  • Enhance your driving experience with our feature RealDrive (Factory fitted models only)
