Fine Quality Model Railways in Gauge 'O' and Gauge '1'
An excellent model by L.H.Loveless/55H Models of British Railways ‘Standard’ 9F 2-10-0 No. 92220 ‘Evening Star’. In lined BR green with shedplate 88A (Cardiff East Dock). Superbly detailed. Supplied in original box with unused accessories, new and test run only. The prototype hardly needs any introduction. It was into service from Swindon Works to Cardiff Canton in March 1960 and was withdrawn from Cardiff East Dock exactly 5 years later in March 1965. It is perhaps most famous for its service on the Somerset & Dorset hauling holiday traffic in the late summers of 1962 and 1963. Thankfully it survived to have a more extended career in preservation. £2300.
