ROD 2-8-0-?

Did I dream I saw a post somewhere stating Hornby have been seen on the
G.C.R measuring up their ROD 2-8-0?
An interesting choice if it is true and materialises. LNER, GWR, Early BR.
Late BR?
Any others?
What is of more interest however is that should it turn out to be true,
could the chassis be used for other loco drive models?? 28xx loco drive??
Dare I hope for 72xx + 42xx ?
Any one know if the wheelbase are similar between ROD and 72xx etc?

ROD 2-8-0s ran in Australia and China, those in Australia almost un-altered from original British design, the Chinese ones were more exotic in appearance. Regards, Bill.

J&A Brown ran a number of them on their colliery railway in the Hunter Valley of NSW, three survive in preservation.
The Kowloon-Canton Railway also had them, IIRC.

The design was by Robinson of the GCR and both the Great Central and the LNWR had some too.

Wow, we could create a demand for OO (as opposed to HO) scale models all around the world. ;-)

GCR, LNWR, LMS. The NER and GER had some on loan from the ROD shortly after WW1, but I doubt that they received local liveries. The LMS had 50, all of which were withdrawn by the early 1930s.

John Sullivan informs me that the wheelbase is almost the same as the GWR 28xx, so maybe this will become loco drive shortly too off the same chassis? 42xx + 72xx dont look so close unfortunatley (Not that that fact wouldstop Bachmann if they were doing it!!!!!)
Still, plenty of options for Hornby to relase different liveries so the model looks a good bet?

Did Hornby not suggest some time ago that they were going to re-tool the 28xx?

I'd be quite happy to have one in OO purely as a display model. One of my fondest childhood memories is a ride on the footplate of a J&A Brown ROD with my engineman grandfather. They are a handome and hard-working engine, with a well deserved following.

I'd forgotten those: D L Bradley (LSWR Locomotives: The Urie Classes) says it was only Nov 1919 to mid-year 1920 - 10 delivered in Nov 1919 and 7 more in Jan 1920.
Any more?

Mark, In re the RODs to China, I don't think that the Kowloon-Canton had any, are you getting mixed up with the W.D. locos that went there after the end of the Pacific War? The Peking-Mukden, Shanghai-Nanking, KMA and Chinese Mining and Engineering, all had RODs, those to the last two organisations probably ended up with the PM. Some RODs survived into the People's Republic days, they were there classified as KD 4. Regards, Bill.

Very mixed up, Bill! I was thinking of the Peking-Mukden, but my fingers typed something else entirely... Thanks for putting me straight.
All the best,
Mark.
