Fine Quality Model Railways in Gauge 'O' and Gauge '1'
An excellent kitbuilt model of BR ex- LMS ex- Lancashire and Yorkshire saddle tank No. 51381. This is in plain BR black with early crest, shedplate 25E Sowerby Bridge. This was built by Ian Rathbone in 1994 (plate on underside) as an LMS loco, subsequently changed to BR by Conrad Cooper. It looks to have an early ABC gearbox but not sure of the motor (which is a little noisy). Excellent cab detail. The prototype to an Aspinall design was into service from Kitsons in January 1880 and was withdrawn from Newton Heath in November 1957. RESERVED.
