The British Railways BR Standard Class 9F 2-10-0 was designed for British Railways by Robert Riddles for use on fast, heavy freight trains over long distances. The total number built was 251. The last of the class, 92220 ‘Evening Star’, was the final steam locomotive to be built by British Railways, in 1960. Withdrawals began in 1964, with the final locomotives removed from service in 1968. Several examples have survived into the preservation.
This is the first co-operative project between Aster Hobby
Co. Inc. (Japan) and Accucraft Trains (USA). Aster’s
experience and expertise in producing the finest kit
models has been combined with Accucraft’s component
manufacturing and production skills to produce the Aster
/ Accucraft BR 9F. This model is offered in both kit form
and as a fully assembled, ready to run model. As a kit, the
components are fully painted and detailed (according to
the version offered), all machining is done, and the boiler
is fully assembled and pressure tested.
