An iconic locomotive…

The A4’s are among the most celebrated locomotives ever built. Designed by Sir Nigel Gresley, the first batch was built at Doncaster in 1935. A series of record breaking exploits led to them being known affectionately as “Streaks” and one of their number, “Mallard”, still holds the world speed record for steam traction.

A very special model…

Not only did we seek to create a Gauge 1 model that looks right, but also one that replicates as closely as possible the technical features of the full size engine. Because the prototype A4 has three working cylinders it went without saying our model would feature outside Walshaerts valve gear with an inside cylinder controlled by the correct pattern Gresley conjugating gear.

Of course, it would have been easier, and considerably cheaper, to make the model as a simple two cylinder, slip eccentric, model. However, to us this is to lose the very essence of what made the A4 such a wonderful performer. This is more than a fine scale model - it has an authentic 3 cylinder beat for a heart.

Choice of three iconic A4’s…

The first three models will be presented in British Railways lined green livery with streamlined, non-corridor, tenders.
