Hornby have produced a newly tooled model of the A1/ A1X class "Terrier" locomotive in OO gauge. The model represents the locomotives in a variety of conditions and liveries from throughout their lifespan and include a number of separately fitted detailing parts, a strong diecast chassis and precise livery application. Models are available with or without factory digital fitting and utilise a 6-pin decoder.
The LB&SCR-built "Terrier" A1 locomotives were constructed between 1872 and 1880 at Brighton works. 17 of these were rebuilt to A1X class between 1911 and 1913, which involved re-boilering the locomotives as well as extending the smokeboxes, moving the placement of the sandboxes and some other changes. The class were nicknamed "Terriers" due to their distincitve exhaust note but also gained other names such as "Rooters" and "Hayling Billy". Originally working on passenger services out of London Bridge and Victoria stations, they moved to shunting and shorter passenger services after being replaced by larger locomotives.
