Model Catalogue Information

YEAR INFORMATION
1995 King George II was one of the first batch of 20 Kings to be built by the Great Western Railway and were the first GW locomotives to have a 4,000 gallon tender. The model depicts the locomotive in its later years fitted with a double chimney and liveried BR green. Beautifully trimmed with brass fittings this locomotive is tender powered by a Type 5 ringfield motor.
1996 This particular King underwent several changes in its operating life, one of which was the fitting of a double chimney in 1956. The motive power of the model is provided by a ringfield motor housed in the replica 4000 gallon tender. Suitable coaches R.437, R.438, R.455, R.436 and R.433.
