Due to the ongoing demand for the Standard 4 we have decided to release these for sale. These will be ready for delivery in February 2020. The models will incorporate the latest upgrades.
The Ubiquitous BR Standard 4 Class ………
Designed by R.A. Riddles the BR Standard 4 Class was first introduced in 1951. With 155 engines built, and allocated to all areas with the exception of the Western Region, the Standard 4 was an ever present feature on freight and suburban trains. The last of the locomotives were withdrawn in 1967 after a relatively short service life due to the introduction of diesel and electric services.
Weighing in at 86 tons the locomotive was large and powerful as well as an elegant design.
The 5″ Gauge Model…….
The BR Standard 4 has proved to be one of our most popular designs ever. With 50 models already delivered the model is a regular sight running at clubs throughout the UK. A number of examples put in a sterling performance at our recent Silver Crest rally at West Huntspill MES. See our website for video.
Each model comes complete with a silver soldered copper boiler, CE marked and hydraulically tested to twice working pressure. We supply fully compliant certificates and paperwork including an EU Declaration of Conformity. Before final delivery to our customer each model will be subject to an inspection by Mike Pavie. As testament to our confidence in the models we offer a full 12 months warranty.
