OO Works Irish GSR/CIE 101 0-6-0


OO Works’ next project is the Great Southern Railway (GSR)/CIE Class 101 (J15) 0-6-0 in ‘OO’ gauge.

Designed by Beyer Peacock, the locomotives were built by several companies with the first ten produced by Beyer Peacock and another eight by Sharp Stewart. The remainder were built by the Great Southern & Western Railway at Inchicore Works in Dublin. Totalling 119 engines, the first locomotive entered service in 1867 with the last rolling out in 1903.

The model will be offered in Type B (low tender) and Type C (high tender) forms, finished as No.196 with high tender in grey with black smokebox, No.179 with high tender in grey with black smokebox, No.146 with low tender in grey and No.125 with low tender in grey. There will also be an all-black version too.

As with previous ready-to-run locomotives from the manufacturer, they will feature cast metal construction, a high-torque coreless motor and satin paint finish.

Priced at £315 each, plus postage and packaging, orders are being taken now.
