Model Rail (UK) - - Master Class -

De­spite their Vic­to­rian ori­gins and un­con­ven­tional looks, three more ‘C53s’ were built in 1921. By the end of the year the 12 lo­co­mo­tives were di­vided be­tween Yar­mouth Vaux­hall (three), Ip­swich (six) and Wis­bech (three). One was trans­ferred to Colch­ester in 1928 to work Hythe Docks; a ‘J70’ was al­ways al­lo­cated to Colch­ester from then on. ‘J70s’ were trans­ferred away from Yar­mouth Vaux­hall when twin-cabbed 200hp Sen­tinels ar­rived. These had, iron­i­cally, been tri­alled on the Wis­bech & Up­well but hadn’t been a suc­cess.
