Boiler history available from the auctioneers on request.This model can also be built in 5 inch gauge to the design by late Don Young and was serialised in Model Engineer Volumes 137-9Full size Locomotive History: Facing a potential rise in passenger traffic, the Great Central Railway placed an order for two pairs of different locomotives from the North British Locomotive Company of Glasgow in 1903 - one pair being the 4-6-0 GCR Class 8C, the other pair being this 4-4-2 locomotive. The two locomotives shared as many common components as possible to allow easy conversion of the 8Bs to the 4-6-0 configuration - and both designs borrowed heavily from John G Robinsons earlier GCR Class 8. However, due to a much smaller than anticipated traffic increase, no further Class 8Cs were built, and instead a further 25 Class 8Bs were ordered and built between 1904 and 1906 - built with larger fireboxes as there was no longer a need to convert the locomotives to a 4-6-0 configuration. In 1909 and 1910, the original locomotives also received this larger firebox.BOILER HISTORY DISCLAIMER Please Note: All boiler history records and references made in this catalogue are made for guidance only and the auctioneers are not able to convey any guarantees or warranties as to the safety of the boilers or their present condition.
