Unboxing video: Hatton's 'P' Class

d399f735-40db-4b6b-8cec-4449c4b80e46

The SECR P Class was a small class of eight locomotives - the first two built in 1909 with the remaining six in 1910.

Modifications to the second batch included: lowered tank & cabs as well as alternate smokebox rivetting. These differences will be catered for in our model.

Originally intended to be deployed on local passenger services, using push-pull equipment, they were quickly found to be somewhat lacking in power and were transferred to shunting and station pilot duties.

Although not a very numerous class of locomotives, they are very well represented in preservation with four examples having been saved. Two are currently undergoing overhaul while two are still operational. One of the examples undergoing overhaul is 753, which is one of the original locomotives.
