"Jinty" LMS 3F - Steam-Outline Electric

"Jinty" LMS 3F - Steam-Outline Electric

'Jinty' is the nickname given to the former British LMS Railway Fowler 3F tank locos, some 422 of which were built between 1924 and 1931. They were used for shunting, banking and light freight and passenger trains.

As well as on the LMS they ran on the S&DJR and lasted well into British Railways days. Nine are preserved and they are very popular with enthusiasts.

The 7 ¼” gauge MTS model is built to a scale of 1/8 of full size (1 ½” = 1ft), is all steel in construction with brass and 3D printed detail features, and has two 1kW 48V motors providing power via an MTS PS7 power controller. The whistle is an actual steam whistle that operates on compressed air that is supplied from the driver’s riding car.

As far as liveries are concerned, prototypically there are LMS and BR black, LMS crimson lake (as preserved) or S&DJR blue, but of course it’s your loco so you can have whatever colour you like!

As an electric locomotive, you get great power at-hand, with extremely low maintenance! Available in 7.25" gauge, these locomotives are a great size striking the balance between portability and heavy haulage. With a 2kw 48v power system, this loco will haul four loaded 7.25" gauge carriages on most tracks.
