No. 130

Model Rail (UK) - - Master Class -

No. 130 en­tered ser­vice in April 1910. It was a one-off build and was pretty much iden­ti­cal to its pre­de­ces­sors, ex­cept that it had stepped rather than parallel buf­fer shanks. It started and ended its ca­reer at Ip­swich but had spent time at Cam­bridge, King’s Lynn and Yar­mouth sheds. It also re­tained one of its Great Eastern Rail­way al­lo­ca­tion plates un­til the end. These plates showed that a lo­co­mo­tive be­longed to one of five dis­tricts (Strat­ford, Peter­bor­ough, Nor­wich, Ip­swich and Cam­bridge) rather than a spe­cific shed.

No. 68220 was a one-off build, from 1910, and sported many mi­nor dif­fer­ences to its 11 sis­ters. It features a 32B (Ip­swich) shed­plate at this end; at the other, it still had its Great Eastern area al­lo­ca­tion plate.
