The forthcoming 009 models of Lynton & Barnstaple Railway Baldwin 2-4-2T 'LYN' is progressing quickly, with the first factory decorated samples received this week for approval. Thanks to expert friends at the 'new' L&BR, these feature highly detailed artwork appropriate to each period of the loco's career as well as an undecorated black loco aimed at freelance modellers.
Standard features include a working LED headlamp, 6-pin DCC decoder interface, detachable couplers, etched metal cowcatchers, and numerous parts specific to period and livery, including coal rails, chimneys, smokebox doors, water tank filler hatches, whistles and safety valves.
