Lovely model & reminder of one of my former "offices".

Brian Sawdon
Class A model perfection.

I was truly amazed at the amount of detailing that's gone into making this model. From the revolving wheel hubs to the roof fans. The livery is also spot on. Quality that is normally associated with more expensive locos.


well detailed model nice smooth runner.a lot of work to produce the various models.well done.whats next a"c" class.

First Class

Absolutely fantastic model. Great details like the clean buffer beam without the caws guards in this middle Irish Rail points logo period. Smooth operation with the flywheels and capacitor. Beautifully captures the feel of the prototype.
