Although not fitted for DCC operation, this model can be converted to DCC (Digital) use if required. NEW N Scale Bachmann #50563 0-6-0 New Haven #2333Photo may or may not show actual road number you are purchasing and is for visual reference only! Built between 1900 and 1908 the eventually 109 strong Wainwright C Class 0-6-0 tender locomotives were one of the first three new designs introduced after the creation of the South Eastern and Chatham Railway following the legal union of the South Eastern Railway and the London Chatham and Dover Railway.
With excellent riding qualities the C Class were often found on passenger and excursion duties as well as their primary role on goods trains throughout originally the SECR and subsequently the Eastern Section of the SR.
Bachmann have certainly done an excellent job in capturing the looks of these engines and the initial impression is very positive. The SECR livery application  is extremely fine, pretty much second to none, capturing nearly all the intricate lining and lettering including the tiny SECR lettering on the tender axle boxes. Bachmann have also tooled for the correct taller original pattern chimney on the SECR livery version which is different to the other two releases.
On the post 1940 Southern black version illustrated here the lettering and numerals, shaded in green, are nicely applied and correct in that the numbers do not have the same inside black line as the lettering on the tender. The underframe detail including the brakes, sandpipes and guard irons are all finely moulded including those on the tender. The loco to tender coupling is a semi permanent fixed bar and is adjustable to shorten the gap between the loco and tender. Bachmann’s usual use of a cast metal coal load helps give some weight to the otherwise quite light tender however if the load is removed it leaves a flat topped tender with a two locating holes rather than any representation of the albeit very small coal space, I assume that this is compromise to leave enough space inside the tender for the fitting of a DCC Sound speaker.
On the all over black livery versions the fine details unlike that of the SECR livery are sometimes lost and some light weathering will actually help accentuate this detail. The motor and drive is very well concealed within the firebox and it does protrude slightly forward of the front of the firebox, which is more noticeable on the SECR green version due to the prominence of the end of the polished boiler band but less so on the black versions.
A lovely wealth of detail is present  including lubricating and control pipework especially around the steam reverser, hand rails and lamp irons. Overall this model of the C Class is a sure fire winner and hopefully it will convince Bachmann to consider other such southern area pre grouping prototypes in the future.
She is very nice model, I hope to get a chance to test run mine at my model railway society tomorrow evening. Nice review of a lovely loco the SECR liveried version was an impulse purchase on my part because it is nigh irresistible, lovely little loco and performed sweetly straight out of the box. Pick mine up today in S E C R what a great model hope someone does some birdcage stock to go with it. Has anyone been brave enough to renumber one yet as I want the earlier livery on mine and I have not plucked up the courage to have a go yet? Mine also runs smoothly and I will how she continues to run before I perhaps fit tender pick ups.
I am aware of a couple of people whom intend to backdate to pre war livery and that shouldn’t be too difficult knowing how simple Bachmann printing usually comes off with a little thinners on a cotton bud.
The loco tender coupling is adjustable via the screw just behind the peg for the drawbar slacken this and the peg can be moved. Both the SECR and the BR black cycling lion versions run well with a few wagons on my layout that has second radius curves and Peco Setrack points.
There is one rule of thumb in all cases when following the prototype – if it might have happened it probably did.
Very smooth runner straight from the box- is there a site which shows where all the bits fit please? The bits supplied are the brake rigging one for the loco and one for the tender along with the cab doors that fix to the loco. I too have the Golden Arrow O1 body and will be interested in your findings on fitting it to the C class chassis.
Chris Leigh has written a review on pages 28 to 30 of Model Rail and given it a rating of 88%. I have also found some pictures of the C Class on the front cover of Locomotives Illustrated 64 March-April 1969 by Ian Allan and on pages 15 – 18.


I have only tried it with four goods wagons so far but it ran well all evening on my Corfe Castle layout in the club room at Furzebrook. There are some more pictures of the prototype C class in Southern Counties Branch Line Steam by Michael Welch published by Capital Transport. One of the reasons I have a C class is that I have plans in place to build Hawkhurst in the future and now have most of the rolling stock and even some of the builds built.
Following previous comment, Branch Lines Video now DVD Classic Southern Region Vol 1 has a good shot from Paddock Wood footbridge which seem to show the cab brass? Whilst air brake capability may have been usesful to move electric stock the fitting pre dates electrification by decades.
Thanks for the information about offering the C class chassis to the O1 it makes sense about the motor ending up more visible due to the shorter firebox. Re air brakes all the fots of dual fitted I have found are in the 700 series but none in BR livery so probably only a small batch were so fitted. I agree that either route is a compromise and indeed is with many of the resin body kits designed to fit on an available RTR chassis. I have bought the Southern Black version to use on the layout of Westerham that I am building. Saturday 11th February 2017; Milton Keynes MRS, Stantonbury Leisure Centre, Stantonbury, Milton Keynes.

See title for actual road number offered in this listing.This locomotive, manufactured by Bachmann, one of the oldest model train manufacturers in the USA is presented in the New Haven scheme with the road number of 2333. The steam reverser however should also be lined but is in plain green on the model presumably due to limitations in the printing process. They certainly look very comparable to my usual preferred use of HMRS decals for most of the SR post 1937 black locos in my fleet.
Brake rigging is supplied for the purchaser to fit to the locomotive and tender, although this is quite fiddly especially on the loco needing to take care around the sanding pipes. The DCC plug location is in the tender so the wires between the loco and tender are connected via a small plug, very similar to that used by Hornby for a while now, which will make splitting the tender and loco apart if necessary much easier. I am not personally convinced by the coal effect this gives and will be adding a layer of real crushed coal once the loco is weathered. This does leave the correct daylight under the boiler but it is a shame that Bachmann have not included, unlike some recent models, any representation of the inside motion between the frames here as just a flat plate is visible.
The detail inside the open cab is excellent and Bachmann have recently upped their game with such detail including the painting and printing. The only thing missing these days from the main manufacturer’s products are loco crew, but I assume that these ideally would need to be painted and would therefore increase costs too much. I have almost finished fitting tender pickups as well and will fit a DCC Concepts decoder at the same time.
Most new RTR locos being produced these days have a space for the speaker included but that does not mean the manufacturer themselves will issue a sound fitted version but I am sure it will not be long before the aftermarket suppliers come up with a suitable chip especially as it can be a real recording from 592 on the Bluebell.
I am aware of the very small coal space but Bachmann have chosen not to model any coal space at all. It has some excellent reviews and is excellent value for money at about half the price of a Hornby M7. My layout is based on the Swanage Railway and I have received comments that a C class has not run there yet. Perhaps someone with BR experience could tell us how bright the firebox was then, ie was it kept metallic clean?
As the loco pick ups go via the DCC socket within the tender this will have to be taken into account when using the chassis on the O1. The only criticisms seem to be that the brake rigging is difficult to fit and it has not got a crew.
I am very impressed with this blog and the level of knowledge displayed by Graham Muz and the other contributors.
On page 5 31588 with the cycling lion emblem is leaving Paddock Wood on 10th June 1961 with a Maunsell pull-push set.


The SECR was the operational merging of London Chatam and Dover, an air braked railway, and the South Eastern, a vacuum braked railway. I dont think the kit would have been removed as nearly all pictures of ex Brighton locos show them to remain dual fitter right up to the last days of steam. Yes the C class would be more over length than the originally specified Hornby generic 0-6-0 chassis but the Bachmann chassis is without doubt finer and at this stage it is worth a simple look to see which compromise looks better in the end.
This well detailed, finely crafted model stands ready to manage your light passenger and freight yard duties when you need it to.
The last members of the class were not withdrawn, mainly as a result of the Kent Coast electrification, until 1962 (although three  survived into departmental use as Ashford Works shunters until 1966). The other limitation of the livery application in model form is the finish of the brass dome does not quite match the highly polished original. It should be noted however that no pick ups are included on the tender itself which is a shame. Like some recent Hornby models there is even representation of the letting and needles on the pressure gauges.
I have noticed that there is provision for a speaker in the tender so I assume a sound version will be available later. The SECR had maroon coaches at one time so I might be able to get away with using some Hornby LMS clerestory coaches on occassional passenger duties. I was also dissapointed at the lack of coal space as I prefer tenders to be filled with real crushed coal and the modelled coal looks too shiny. Is it acceptable to run an ex SECR locomotive on an ex LSWR layout or should I stick rigidly to running locomotives that have been spotted on the Swanage Railway? Intere4sting idea to convert to O1- wheelbase may be problem, otherwise the centre of boiler is same height- who dares repaint the secr long chimney version? On page 6 the same engine is taking an empty hop pickers’ special bound for Hawkhust on 11th September 1960. I got a driver in but found that the lack of a fall plate left the fireman suspended over the gap to the tender. Curiously all versions have the protruding top of the firebox inside the cab painted in brass. It’s a shame they don’t sell the sound decoder as a spare as you have to purchase a loco you may not want just to get the sound decoder. However I run a Lord Nelson which didnt run outside the western section after the war, I also run King Arthur which has a cab too big for the eastern section. I’m told the airpumps by the cab on a few were for shiftimg electric stock- certainly one was operating on the Maidstone West linein the last days, using normal stock. However, I was hoping to achieve more daylight under the boiler, and this won’t occur due to the placement of the motor.
This is not unusual as the tender forms part of the working area and I have read tales of firemen having one foot on the loco and one on the tender as they fetched a new shovelfull. Whilst this is likely to be correct for the SECR livery version I am not convinced it would have looked that way in later life as per the other livery variations. It will also look good with my Kentish private owner wagons from model shops in Hythe and Tunbridge Wells.
31086 is illustrated by St Pauls in London after its move from Gillingham in one of the colour mags this month.. The resin would need careful filing away to achieve a fit, and in my view this would leave it too thin for my big fingers! I am looking at using a mainline Collett chassis as it appears to be close but until my O1 arrives won’t know.
There is no point in sacrificing full lining, sprung buffers and separate handrails if people are prepared to pay for them on small locomotives.
