Model Catalogue Information

YEAR INFORMATION
2001 Originally outshopped from Eastleigh Works in 1945, 'Bibby Line' was rebuilt in 1956 and withdrawn in the early months of 1965. It is unfortunate that this locomotive has the dubious record of being the only member of the class to be cut up by BR. This fine model depicts 'Bibby Line' as it appeared in the early 1960's complete with a scale 6000 gallon tender. The motive power is supplied by a 5 pole motor situated in the locomotive.
