References in brackets are Slaters
One of Stanier's masterpieces, this work-horse was so useful that many were purchased by the LNER, and many more saw use abroad well into the 90's. The loco with its elgant and simplistic lines may look tempting, but should not be used as a first attempt at building. The kit has Brass Loco and Tender bodies with N/Silver chassises. Castings in both Lost Brass Wax and White Metal compliment the kit.
