LDAT01. A very good kitbuilt model of LMS Stanier 8F 2-8-0 No. 8173. Fitted with rivetted tender and painted in BR plain black with shedplate 26A Newton Heath (Manchester). This is very well built and painted from a RM brass kit and has excellent cab detail. The model is lightly used. The prototype was into service from Crewe Works in June 1943 and was withdrawn from Mold Junction in July 1965 after spending most of its BR life at Rugby. Moving to Barry Docks she was one of the last locos to leave there in September 1988 (as the 208th resident to leave) and is now subject to a long term preservation attempt at the Churnet Valley Railway.
