The Z1a's definitely lasted into the late forties. One I remember best was the
1425.    Jim Nichols

Subject: Z1a Class

 I am not sure if this enquiry is aimed at historical N&W or modelling.
I am a member of the N&W Historical Society and at present I am trying to
find the number of the loco of the class  of Z1a's that lasted the longest
before either scrapping or rebuilding with piston valve low pressure cylinders,
so I can put the "best fit" number on a brass HO scale Z1a model.  I am hoping
at least one retained its slide valves into the late forties or early fifties!
Being in the UK I am some-what out of the loop when it comes to research. I have
at least 6 books on the N&W including N&W Giant of Steam by Jeffries, but the
above information has eluded me.
  Can any-one help?
Thanks and regards,
    Fred Bailey.
PS I am the engineer for a new build full size atlantic locomotive being built
at the Bluebell Railway in Sussex in the UK. Here is a link to our part of the
web site if any-one is interested.
