7.25" Gauge Thompson Class B1

7.25" Gauge Thompson Class B1

We can finally unveil the 7.25" Gauge, Thompson Class B1. Not only do we have this brilliant locomotive in LNER Green but we also have rare British Railways Black.

The LNER Thompson Class B1 was the workhorse of its day. Designed by Edward Thompson, it was meant to be a cheap, wartime locomotive that would help get Britain back on its feet. The train soon became iconic throughout post-war Britain with more than 410 being completed in total since the first in 1942.

Built to a commercial standard

This loco is built to withstand commercial use in parks and clubs or for the garden rail enthusiast and comes with a built in, fully painted and lined passenger car so you can actually ride and drive this coal fired beauty.
