Fine Quality Model Railways in Gauge 'O' and Gauge '1'
LRT01. A very good model of LNER Gresley A4 4-6-2 Pacific No. 4498 ‘Sir Nigel Gresley’. This is from a DJH brass and whitemetal kit and represents the loco in pre-war valanced condition with corridor tender and in LNER garter blue livery. Fitted with Crailcrest type motor (a little noisy), double reduction gearbox, Slaters wheels and with excellent cab detail. Also fitted with extra pickups on the tender. The model is lightly used. The prototype was into service from Doncaster Works in October 1937 and was withdrawn from Aberdeen Ferryhill in February 1966 having spent its last 2 years on the Glasgow – Aberdeen 3 hour expresses. Subsequently and thankfully preserved as part of the National Collection. £1200.
