Fine Quality Model Railways in Gauge 'O' and Gauge '1'
An excellent model of GWR 47xx ‘heavy freight’ 2-8-0 loco No. 4705 from a Martin Finney kit. Fitted with Alan Harris (AGH) wheels, beam compensated chassis, Maxxon motor with ABC gearbox, and sprung tender. Excellent cab detail with crew. Recently the plain GWR green livery with shirtbutton tender emblem was repainted by Conrad Cooper and medium weathering added, and shown as running from Plymouth Laira. The model has had some use. The prototype was into service from Swindon Works in April 1922 and was withdrawn from Old Oak Common in December 1963. £1200.
