Fitted with a Shogun motor and gearbox from Tower Models (similar to the ABC/Canon combination), and Slaters wheels. Excellent cab detail with crew. Built and painted by Dave Murdoch. Lightly used. The prototype was a Thompson rebuild of a GCR Class 8A dating from 1910 and produced at Gorton Works. No. 69926 lasted until February 1958 and withdrawal from Frodingham (36C) after spending 7 years there. Price reduced to £795.
