Research - Southern

Postby kjiwizard » Tue May 22, 2012 2:32 pm

Is there any call for an early Southern Railway tendered engine and if so in what gauge?

Hornby already do the King Arthur, Schools, T9, Q1 and M7 in Southern Railway livery in OO. Is this what you're thinking about?

Bachmann and Hornby clearly think so, as far as OO is concerned. Hornby have the LSWR T9 originally dating from 1899 as already mentioned, Bachmann are taking a punt on the Wainwright C class of 1900.

Those are two of the earliest tender loco model subjects currently available.

Sorry chaps

I model in N gauge and I can only find one that Union Mills do.

Do any N gaugers agree with me that this is an area sadly lacking?

I love the Southern locos. I want the Schools Class Hornby are doing right now. It's a shame coaches seem so rare.

What green are we talking? Olive green or malachite green?
