J65 (6)8211

Penultimate survivor of the class, no. 8211 spent the last fifteen years of its life rusticated in Suffolk and Norfolk having worked the Blackwall line out of Fenchurch Street for many years since its introduction in 1889.  For duties both in the capital and the East Anglian backwaters the loco usually ran as a 2-4-0T, and is replicated here in the transitional period of 1948-1951 while it still wore the wartime NE livery, but with the British Railways smokebox plates.

Mostly scratchbuilt with brass investment castings, the model has AGH wheels, split axle pixkups and is powered through an ABC three-stage gearbox.
