The West Country class of locomotives were introduced to the Southern railway in 1945 and was a totally new design of locomotive with many innovative features including chain drive to the valve gear and a new form of air-smoothed casing. Many of the locomotives were rebuilt in the 1960's with conventional valve gear and no streamlining.
A scale model with many features of the full size locomotive - clasp brakes and air-smoothed casing - but using conventional inside valve gear.
