C35 Class 4-6-0 Ten Wheelers

There were 35 35 class locos built! They entered service from 1914 to 1923, and were originally known as the NN class before the 1924 renumbering. Because of this, they were still often called "nannies" right up until they were retired, the last to be scrapped being 3501. 3526 is the only preserved example.

  • Description : Kevin Benson is using some of the photos above to model a 35 class loco. You can see part of his progress in his previous email, and he continues:
    (Here is) this weeks' effort, which was to make two lamps for the front. I decided the smaller of the two looked better, and I attach your photo that I used to model the front. The buffer now needs shaping, but that will be next year when I get a grinder to get through the brass. The smoke box door now has hinges, handle, and the lamp, which proved quite hard to line with foil.
