Class 56xx BR Unlined Black (Early Emblem) 0-6-2 Tank Locomotive No.6639
Revolution Trains in conjunction with Sonic Models recently announced the attractive GWR/BR 56XX 0-6-2T in N Gauge. Today (31/03/20) they announced an additional six variants to its line up, meaning a total of twelve versions are available to pre-order.
The models will feature coreless motors, NEM 6 pin decoder socket, NEM couplers, original or later style driving wheel balance weights, Swindon or Armstrong (NE) safety valves, detailed cab interior and accessory detail pack.
Expected Q3 2020
Rails of Sheffield is now handling all orders and fulfilment of these models exclusively
With a limited production run of each variant, pre-ordering is highly recommended.
200 of the attractive 56XX locomotives were built at Swindon (with a small number built in the North East due to capacity issues) and designer C B Collett borrowed heavily from the proven south Wales valleys engines inherited by the GWR.
The locomotives were reliable and sturdy and while originally intended for traffic in south Wales they rapidly saw service across the GWR, and subsequently the western region of British Railways, from the South West to the Midlands.
All were withdrawn by the end of 1965, and nine are now preserved.
