Production Details:

LMS Suburban Passenger Train Pack - Limited Edition

Away from the perceived glamour of the mainline, the real work of the railways took place on a myriad of suburban lines across the country, especially in the great conurbations of the Midlands.
The main requirement for a locomotive working suburban services was to have quick acceleration, efficient braking and good tractive ability, the latter being especially useful when pulling heavy carriages, full of commuters.
Fowler’s 4P 2-6-4T engine was ideally suited to this task, mainly being used on longer distance commuter trains from stations in the big cities of England, as well as being used to bank heavy passenger and goods trains on the West Coast Main Line. Typically hauling sets of Stanier’s 57’ non-corridor suburban stock, thousands of commuters spent their working week travelling back and forth from the cities behind these engines.
This train pack recreates a typical suburban working, with Fowler 4P No. 2238 in LMS lined black and two Stanier 57’ non-corridor Brake Third coaches 20768 and 20769, with Composite 16592, in LMS lined maroon livery.


Hornby Golden Arrow Last Steam Run Train Pack - Limited Edition - R3400

Hornby Golden Arrow Last Steam Run Train Pack - Limited Edition

This Model Railway Locomotive is DCC ReadyHornby Model Railway 2017 Product

Product Code: R3400

 

Production Details:

The height of luxury train travel was exemplified by the distinctive chocolate and cream liveried Pullman carriages; named first class lounge cars, with a steward service, that were operated by the British Pullman Car Company.

In 1929, the Southern Railway inaugurated their own, all-Pullman train, the Golden Arrow, consisting of ten first class carriages, a brake wagon and a flat wagon carrying luggage in containers and the service ran until uninterrupted until the beginning of the Second World War.

Post-war, the sight of the Merchant Navy locomotives became a regular part of life along the Victoria–Dover line and in 1951, ten new First Class Pullman Cars, the Festival of Britain set, were introduced to the service, the cars being Aquila, Orion, Carina, Cygnus, Hercules, Perseus, Pegasus, Minerva and Car numbers 35 and 208. From September 15, 1952, the Golden Arrow was routed out through Folkestone Harbour, but reverted to the Dover route from May 29, 1960, a last fanfare for steam traction on the train, as on June 11, 1961, West Country Class 34100 Appledore hauled the last steam working of the service.

This train pack reflects that last run of the Golden Arrow, with locomotive 34100 Appledore being joined by 1951 Festival of Britain U Class Pullman Cars, Minerva (Kitchen First), No. 34 and No. 36 (Parlour Seconds). These three Pullman cars will be fitted with interior lighting and the pack will contain full 'Golden Arrow' regalia for attaching to 34100, with the locomotive featuring BR lined green with late crests and a Stewarts Lane (73A) shedcode on the smokebox door.

Contents:

- Golden Arrow locomotive 34100 Appledore, - 1951 Festival of Britain U Class Pullman Car - Minerva (Kitchen First), - 1951 Festival of Britain U Class Pullman Car - No. 34, - 1951 Festival of Britain U Class Pullman Car - No. 36 (Parlour Seconds)


Hornby LNER Queen of Scots Train Pack - Limited Edition - R3402

Hornby LNER Queen of Scots Train Pack - Limited Edition

This Model Railway Locomotive is DCC ReadyHornby Model Railway 2017 Product

Product Code: R3402

 

Production Details:

The ‘Queen of Scots’ service commenced in 1928, but its development can be traced back to Grouping, in 1923, when the fledgling LNER acquired a number of Great Eastern Pullmans. Instead of allocating them on a piecemeal basis, as the GER had done, the LNER’s management decided to open up a new luxury service to Newcastle, via Leeds and Harrogate. 

The Harrogate Pullman was a success and the route was extended to Edinburgh, running non-stop from Kings Cross to Harrogate from the autumn of 1925. From May 1, 1928, when two new 8 car, all-steel Pullman K type sets were introduced for a route extension to Glasgow and the ‘Queen of Scots’ service commenced

Hauled initially by the Ivatt Atlantics, by 1935 the 400 ton, ten car train necessitated the use of A1, A3 and A4 locomotives and even Gresley’s W1 design was allocated at times. At Leeds, two cars were detached from the service, leaving eight to continue on the journey.

This train pack recreates the service in the second half of the 1930s, with Gresley ‘A4’ 4-6-2 4500 Garganey in LNER garter blue, which will be accompanied by all-steel K-Type Brake Third 'No. 77', Kitchen First 'Thelma' and Parlour First 'Sheila'. Roofboards will be fitted to each carriage and a headboard for the ‘A4’ will be included as a separate fitting to complete the model.

Contents:

'A4’ 4-6-2 4500 Garganey in LNER garter blue,  All-steel K-Type Brake Third 'No. 77', All-steel K-Type Kitchen First 'Thelma', All-steel K-Type Parlour First 'Sheila'


Hornby Wainwright H Class 0-4-4T Early BR Train Pack - Limited Edition

Hornby Model Railway 2017 Product

Product Code: R3512

 

Production Details:

Hornby Wainwright H Class 0-4-4T Early BR Train Pack - Limited Edition. Gauge: 00, DCC Type: DCC Ready, Livery: BR (Late), Limited Edition: Yes, Class: H, Wheel Configuration: 0-4-4.

Wholesale withdrawal by British Railways (Southern Region) of former LB&SCR Class D3, LC&DR Class R and SE&CR Class R1 locomotives left the eastern section of the region short of motor-fitted engines and so the salvaged gear was fitted to many of the Wainwright 'H' Class locomotives from March 1949. The first of the class to be converted was No. 31522, with a further forty four engines being converted by January 1961 and with their excellent acceleration and free steaming characteristics, the locomotives proved a popular success in this role, being used across both eastern and central sections of the region. Coaching Stock: Push/Pull Set 602, - 1 x ex-BCK, - 1 x ex-SO. Minimum Curve: Hornby 2nd radius + / 438mm+.
