This received stock are all allocated to pre orders but further stock expected of the DCC Ready and DCC Fitted models in the next few weeks, order below:

DCC Ready - £327.25 (RRP £385.00)

DCC Fitted - £412.25 (RRP £485.00)




Locomotive Features:

  • Capable of navigating 11” (282mm) radius curves thanks to its articulated frame.
  • An all-new synchronized twin-motor coreless drive that provides the combined power of two individual engines!
  • Illuminated deck-mounted headlight.
  • Post 2021 “modern” excursion appearance!
  • Exquisitely moulded details replicating the distinct and extensive piping details that stretch the length of the boiler.
  • Heavily weighted with its metal frame and additional weights in the body details for precise balance and unparalleled pulling capacity.
  • Both body and tender electrical pickup for unmatched electrical reliability.

Thanks to a special articulated mechanism, the Big Boy is able to manoeuvre around 11” radius curves, just like the Union Pacific FEF-3 and GS-4 from Kato USA!
