RNAD 99hp Baguley-Drewry

NPL-001 • by Narrow Planet

About the kit

This kit is comprised of a 3D printed plastic body shell and a fret of etched nickel silver detail parts. Minimal folding of these parts is required and they can all be glued in place.

The body is designed to be a clip-fit on a Kato 11-104 'tram' chassis, with minor alterations. This mechanism is known for its good running qualities, and while the wheelbase is over-scale the side skirts on the loco mean this is not visible. Other versions of the tram chassis may fit but the 11-104 has the thinnest side frame detail.

This kit is designed to use the popular Greenwich coupling, and the body print has a slot in the buffer blocks for easy fitting.

Prototype Info

This design of loco was built by Baguley-Drewry in the early 1980s for service on the extensive 2' 6" lines at RNAD munitions depots around the UK. As well as the 99hp design represented here, there was a smaller 60hp version which we also produce as a kit.

Following rationalisation of RNAD installations, disposal sales have resulted in many of these locos appearing on preserved lines around the country. Notable current locations of the 99hp design are the Statfold Barn Railway, Whipsnade Zoo and the Talyllyn Railway.
