BritishBricks’ fantastic USA Tank is ready, and boy is it impressive!
The USRA S100 were a 382 strong class of tank locomotives imported to Britain in 1943 to aid in the invasion of Europe during the last years of the second world war.
In 1946, the Southern Railway needed locomotives with a short wheelbase to replace life expired locos for dock working, and purchased 13 of the S100s.
The loco modelled is number 30064 in British Railways Green as she existed during her time as Eastleigh Locomotive Depot’s shunter, and as she has appeared during some of her life in preservation.
Contains Instructions for powered and unpowered versions, Bricklink xml Partlist for each set of Instructions and quick guide on how to use the Partlists.
