Kairyu tank loco

Not seen mention of this before ...

Bachmann rebadged its US Vulcan Iron Works 0-6-0ST (81801) switcher loco for Kairyu (JKS0001).

Black livery, carries the number 8 and has lettering on the tank with a green cross and Chinese characters for Safety First!

AFAIK none of these got to China (I think there were only a handful of saddle tanks in the country) ... preference being given to side tanks - XK2 etc. Now there's a thought!

One just made an appearance on ebay. Would go well with the Kairyu clerestory coaches.
