LNER Dynamometer Car - Version 1 LNER teak livery, as No. 23591, as it was at 3 July 1938 for the Mallard world speed record breaking run

Rails of Sheffield is delighted to reveal that it is working with Rapido Trains Inc. to produce an outstandingly detailed OO gauge model of the LNER’s record-breaking dynamometer car No. 23591. Best known as the vehicle that recorded the 126mph run of LNER ‘A4’ No. 4468 Mallard on July 3rd 1938, the iconic 1906-built North Eastern Railway test car is now part of the National Collection, reunited with Mallard at the National Railway Museum in York.

The all-new OO gauge model of No. 23591 will be the first of a series of products released under the ‘Rails Exclusive’ brand of high-quality, collectable ready-to-run models, produced exclusively for one of the UK’s largest model railway retailers, Rails of Sheffield. Two versions will be offered initially, depicting No. 23591 in July 1938 LNER teak condition, as it was during Mallard’s world speed record run; and post-1946 LNER teak with its later number - No. 905202 - as seen during the famous 1948 Locomotive Interchange trials.

Rapido Trains is famous for producing models that capture famous or unusual vehicles right down to the tiniest detail, and the LNER dynamometer car will be no exception. Based on detailed research of the prototype, archive photographs and official drawings, the ‘Rails Exclusive’ model will feature exceptional interior and underframe detail, including depictions of the recording equipment and the additional speed recording wheel between the bogies.
