£130.00. Packed Weight 500g

C.R. numbers 282-293, 325-328, 652-659, 661-665, 812-878; L.M.S. numbers 17550-17645

A kit for one (or indeed two !) of the Caledonian"s workhorses. The Class 812 was introduced in 1899; an enlargement of the famous "Jumbo" 0-6-0s it was designed for general freight duties throughout the system. The first batch was also Westinghouse brake fitted for use on passenger trains (and thus painted blue). The Class 652, introduced in 1908, was very similar to the Class 812 differing mainly in the shape of the cab cut-out. The kit includes parts to enable either class to be built. The locomotives were allocated to almost every part of the Caledonian system and in L.M.S. days were to be found on many former H.R. and G.&S.W.R. lines. By the time of their final demise in 1963 they were not even strangers to N.B. and G.N.o.S. sheds.

Shown as the Class 812 variant in the illustration above.

Caledonian Railway Coat of Arms

"Wha dare meddle wi' me" - a loose translation of the Scottish motto (nemo me impune lacessit, litterly meaning "no-one provokes me with impunity") which was appropriated along with the Scottish coat of arms (without any sanction from the Lord Lyon, King of Arms) by the Caledonian Railway Co.
