Locomotion: The National Railway Museum at Shildon has announced that the next Exclusive Edition in the NRM’s 'National Collection in Miniature' model railway series, produced by Bachmann, will be L&Y Tank Engine No. 1008 in pre grouping livery.

Exclusive OO gauge model - L&Y Tank Engine No. 1008

Railways are not always about speed and glamour, and the latest Exclusive Edition celebrates one of the everyday locomotives in the National Collection. No. 1008 is a Lancashire & Yorkshire Railway tank engine from 1889 and was the first engine to be built at that railway company’s new works in Horwich.

It worked across the L&Y system on local passenger trains mainly, apart from a spell being tried out on London commuter trains in 1926. Returning to its native North West, it continued in service for the London Midland & Scottish Railway and then British Railways until 1954, when it became part of the British Transport Commission collection of historic relics. It was restored to its original condition in 1958.

The model will be available from mid-November exclusively through the museum’s online outlet at www.locomotionmodels.com and from the museum shop at Locomotion: The National Railway Museum at Shildon, priced at £95 plus p&p.

The Locomotion Models team are now accepting pre-delivery orders from anyone wishing to purchase this model. The model is limited, and early ordering is advised. Orders are limited to two per customer initially.
