Description

The London, Midland and Scottish Railway took delivery of a total of 50 locomotives. The engines were concentrated on a small number of sheds including Shrewsbury (4A), Crewe South (5B), Mold Junction (6B) and Toton (18A). As a result, they saw restricted usage on parts of the LMS network, mostly working on the Southern sections.

No.2415 was a standard American Locomotive Company (ALCO) engine and has been depicted in wartime condition. It was subsequently sent to Germany and worked from the Koblenz-Lutzel shed, before finally moving to Hungary with MAV and becoming 411.290.

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.
