By the close of the thirties, the Castle Class was G.W.R.s standard express locomotive cleared for use on all routes without restriction - a very fast and powerful locomotive that continued to be built in Swindon until 1950. Earl Cairns is presented in post nationalisation livery of that late steam period. Model has a ringfield motor in the locomotive.
