Hattons is very pleased to announce that they are taking orders for the new line of OO/1/76 Andrew Barclay 14" & 16" 0-4-0ST locos
Andrew Barclay Sons & Co. were a locomotive building company based in Kilmarnock, Scotland. They became known for producing their standardised saddle tank locomotives, mainly for industrial use. They had a small selection of options available to prospective buyers such as alternative cabs, cylinders, chimneys and tanks.
The most numerous type produced were the 14" & 16" versions, referring to the diameter of the cylinders. Thousands of 0-4-0s were built by Andrew Barclay starting in the late 1800s. Many survived longer than mainline steam under BR, with some still running in the late 1970s. Over 100 are believed to be preserved across the UK.
We are producing a total of 8 14" versions and 4 16" versions in a wide variety of liveries and including the variations that would have originally been available from Andrew Barclay themselves.
- Two different cab front windows
- Four different cab rear windows
- Two types of buffer shanks
