Description

The London and North Eastern Railway had the second-largest number of S160 locomotive allocations, with a total of 168 engines. These could be found all across the LNER network including Scotland, with large numbers of engines based at over a dozen sheds.  The largest concentrations were found in East Anglia serving many of the air bases which relied upon the railways.

No.1712 was commissioned at Swindon works prior to delivery to the LNER. Once transferred to the continent, the engine was sent to Germany and worked from the Mainz-Bischofsheim shed, before finally moving to Hungary with MAV and becoming 411.147.

Each model features factory-fitted speakers in the smokebox and tender, dual LED firebox glow with dynamic fire draw effect, a large twin flywheel motor, detachable loco and tender connections, pickups on all driving and tender wheels alongside a tender mounted 21-pin DCC decoder socket. DCC Sound versions will be fitted with an ESU LokSound5 decoder and our own sound project.
