If you want to re-create the
sounds, sight, and smell, of the golden age of steam
there is no substitute for a real coal-fired engine.

spirits you away to past times. The crackling of the
fire and the aroma of coal smoke mixed with steam
make the senses tingle with a sense of anticipation.
In the past two years we have delivered over 100
live steam models to a discerning collectors market.
Our previous models were gas fired. Here, for the
first time, we offer the ultimate in model steam
with our "ready-to-run" coal-fired Britannia Class.

their value and look likely to show gains in the
future. We are so confident in the quality and value
of this model we intend to offer a "buy-back"
