Model Catalogue Information

2009 Extensive detail, sprung buffers.
Designed by Mr. R.A. Riddles, the Clans were a slightly scaled down version of the BR Britannia Class and featured a smaller boiler and cylinders. Ten of the class were built at Crewe between 1951 and 1952 with a further 15 planned which were intended for the Scottish and Southern regions, however, the final 15 were cancelled due to British Railways modernisation plans. The 10 completed Clans were “shedded” at Polmadie, Glasgow and Carlisle and were consequently seen working mixed traffic trains on routes between Manchester, Liverpool, Carlisle, Perth and Glasgow. The last Clan was removed from service in 1966.

Motor Information
