Model Catalogue Information

YEAR INFORMATION
1992 This handsome design by Sir Henry Fowler provided a suburban passenger locomotive with excellent acceleration and power. Suitable for coaches R.442, R.443, R.429 and R.447.
1993 Because of their excellent acceleration and pulling power these ex LMS locos remained in service almost to the end of the steam era. Powered by Type 7 motor in SSPP chassis with traction tyres on centre drivers. Suitable for coaches R.442 and R.443.
1994 Designed for suburban passenger traffic the 4P class had excellent acceleration and were, inevitably, later used for freight work. The model has a delightfully detailed cab interior and window glazing and is powered by a Type 7 motor built into an SSPP chassis with traction tyres on the centre driving wheels.
1995 Originally built for the LMS, these powerful locomotives lasted well into the BR period and were used mainly for suburban mixed traffic work. Powered by a Type 7 ringfield motor which is built into an SSPP chassis. For added pulling power the locomotive has traction tyres fitted to its centre driving wheels. The glazed cab has a fully detailed interior.
1996 Fowler 4Ps were used mainly for suburban mixed traffic work and saw service from the days of the LMS until the demise of steam in the mid 1960s. For added pulling power the model has fitted traction tyres together with a Type 7 motor built into the SSPP chassis.
1997 Fowler 4P locomotives were used mainly for suburban mixed traffic work, lasting from the days of the L.M.S. until the demise of steam in the mid 1960s. The model is liveried for the period 1949-1956. It has traction tyres fitted to the wheels for extra pulling power, and a Type 7 motor in an SSPP chassis.
