About Great Eastern Railway S56 No.87 by Terrier82Boxhill

The GER used a variety of 0-6-0t tank engines (nicknamed "Buckjumpers") for their "Jazz" trains, an intense suburban service which departed from London Liverpool Street. This example, No.87, was built at Straford Works in 1904, and worked on the suburban trains as well as rural branch line duties. No.87 is the only preserved member of its type, and is owned by the National Railway Museum (currently loaned to Bressingham Steam Gardens).

My model includes vigorous attention to detail, and contains the many unique features of the S56 class, such as the lipped funnel, yellow cab interior, custom drawn number plates, uniquely shaped side tanks, various pipework, red coupling rods and a covered safety valve. I based the model of No.87 on it's preserved condition, meaning it appears as built in the elegant GER blue livery it would've worn during its finest days.
