This is the long awaited Alexander Models NER class T3, LNER/BR class Q7 loco kit fitted to one of our EM gauge chassis kits.  Alexander Models has developed a Tyne Dock kit available as an extra for this model.  This is the first picture if of an Alexander Models Q7 fitted with the Westinghouse pump equipment.  The loco will be finished as 63473 as running in between 1952 to 1957 when it was hauling ore trains from Tyne dock to Consett.

                                                         Chassis specification.

 

1      Comprehensive instructions comprising of 9, A4 pages of assembly instructions. Two A4 pages of                diagrams and a parts list.  The fret has part numbers etched beside each part for easier identification.

2      This is the latest addition to our Easi-Rider range of loco chassis for kit built loco's.  The chassis etch             is in 0.38mm nickel silver for improved stength and rigidity.  It fits the DJH body with only one small             alteration to the drag box under the cab.  This has to be reduced in height by approx 1mm to                       accommodate the two wires holding the brake pull lever.

3       Fits the newly released Alexander Models Q7 loco and tender kit. 

 

4      The all new chassis works on the same proven principles as our NER T2, LNER/BR Q6 chassis but with           the benefit of hindsight and experience has even more detailed features. No need to buy an                         expensive chassis assembly jig, this chassis can be folded up around a 12" steel rule.

5      We still use the tried and proven 54:1 2-stage gearbox and Mashima 1420 motor but there is room to          use a 1424 motor should the builder prefer this.

6      The all new cylinders and motion bracket are assembled as a unit and are removeable for                               maintenance.

7     The new etched crossheads are made up from 4 etched pieces and a piston rod.  The crosshead is a            perfect fit between the slidebars and the inner and outer pieces are accurately located by 4,                          Ø0.45mm dowels. The 14BA csk screw and nut hold the new double thickness connecting rods in                place.

8     The coupling rods are made up from 16 etched pieces and have prototypical rivetted joints for each              of the 3 sections. This greatly improves the model's ability to negotiate curves and turnouts.   

9      The brake hangers are prototypical in appearance and the rigging is prototypical in operation. (See              image of the underside of the chassis)

10      Provision has been made for the use of Gibson Plunger Pickups. Should you wish to use American                style current collection then pickups aren't necessary at all.

11      The later BR version with the mechanical lubricator drive can be modelled.

12     Our test chassis will run 24" Radius curves in EM gauge.
