Description

The 3F ‘Jinty’ was an LMS tank engine inspired by the design of a Midland Railway designed tank engine. Henry Fowler saw potential in the Midland Railway 2441 Class which itself would prove so dependable that they would last in service until 1966. The Jinty was a simple design with inside cylinders and belpaire firebox that allowed the locomotive to reach up to 60mph. Locomotives were fitted with steam heating for working short passenger trains, which was a far cry from their initial brief as a shunting engine.

The 3F would be the main shunting and tank engine of the LMS and would find itself serving all over the UK when the class came into the ownership of BR in 1948. The Jintys would prove to be useful engines even after larger freight engines would be introduced with some examples lasting until 1967 in service. 9 examples of the class have been preserved including the last to be withdrawn.

An iconic user of the 3F class was the fairly unique Somerset and Dorset Joint Railway. The SDJR became a part of the LMS in 1923 when the grouping act came into effect however it would not have its identity absorbed into that of the LMS. The SDJR would run its locomotives in either its time honoured ‘Prussian Blue’ livery with SDJR lettering or SDJR Black. The SDJR took delivery of seven examples of the locomotive in 1928. These locomotives would only stay at the railway for a couple of years, being absorbed into the LMSR in 1930 and redistributed.

Locomotive 25 entered SDJR service in 1928 before being taken into LMS stock in 1930 along with the rest of the class. The locomotive would be renumbered twice in fairly quick succession first to 7156 in 1930 and then to 7316 in 1934. In BR service the locomotive would be numbered 47316 and would remain in service until withdrawal and scrapping in 1962.

The Hornby Jinty is fitted with a 3 pole motor and simple gearing, proving to be a reliable runner on any layout. The 6 pin DCC socket allows the model to be used on a digital layout if required and its railroad specification make it ideal as a starter model.

Understanding Scale

The scale of a model is its size as a proportion to the real-life item. For instance, a 1:18 scale model means that every 1 unit of measurement on the model equals 18 units on the real item. If you divide the real item's size by 18, you'd get the size of the 1:18 model. Please note that models can vary slightly in size, as not all real-life items, like cars or planes, have the same dimensions.
