Model Catalogue Information

YEAR INFORMATION
1978 The Ivatt 2-6-0?s were designed for the cross-country services of the LMS and their light weight gave them a wide route availability across a network of lines with severe weight restrictions. The Hornby model depicts one of the locomotives completed after nationalisation and it can still be seen hauling trains on the Severn Valley Railway in Shropshire. The model has glazed windows fitted to both the locomotive and tender, and has finer scale wheels.
1980 Includes crew figures and vacuum pipes.
1981 Vacuum pipes and crew figures.
