Product Information

Product Description

We are proud to present the stunning Bachmann Narrow Gauge OO9 Scale model of Quarry Hunslet Steam Locomotive ‘Britomart’ in Pen-yr-Orsedd Quarry Blue livery. Barely larger than a 9V battery, this diminutive model still packs a punch with its diecast boiler and running plate, accompanied by a wealth of separately fitted details including handrails, valves, springs, brake shoes and cab controls. The 0-4-0ST wheel formation is faithfully modelled, with authentically-profiled wheels running in metal bearings ensuring smooth running, powered by a coreless motor with flywheel, and with a 6 Pin DCC decoder socket for those wishing to use the models with a DCC system. NEM coupling pockets feature at both ends, into which standard OO9 scale couplings are fitted.

‘BRITOMART’ HISTORY (with grateful thanks to The Quarry Hunslet website)

 Britomart moved to the Ffestiniog Railway in 1965 after a working life at the Pen-yr-Orsedd Quarry in the Nantlle Vale in North Wales. The engine is typical of the small Hunslet 0-4-0STs built by Hunslet of Leeds for quarries in North Wales. Britomart is owned by a private consortium and is housed and steamed on special occasions at the Ffestiniog Railway.
