310 Cauliflowers were built from 1880 and the last was withdrawn in 1955. They were the first
LNWR engines to use Joy valvegear.
The kit is being developed in stages as a bolt-together high pressure live steamer, but an electric version will be offered at a later date. The concept of the kit is that a modeller with no previous experience of live steam and without an extensive workshop should be capable of assembling it using just hand tools. The model has a level of detail normally seen on the better models in smaller scales, but is engineered to a high degree so as to be robust and reliable in use. Those who subscribe at an early stage will be given the opportunity to buy parts and sub-assemblies as they are produced, at cost price. The complete kit should thus cost no more than £2,500. Once complete, the price will increase in order to recover some of the set-up costs.
