KR Models announces new War Department 2-10-0 locomotive

30 November 2023
Responding to customer demand, the manufacturer will offer the new model in four liveries.

Revealed at Warley this weekend, the team at KR Models has been working on the project for over a year, working closely with the custodians of the full-size LMR number 600 'Gordon', measuring up the real locomotive on the Severn Valley Railway.

The new model will have a sound option using ESU Loksound V5 decoders, plus KR Models’ newly-designed synchronised smoke unit that uses a specially developed smoke fluid.

The badly arranged and edited opening page makes it look like Ellis Clarke are doing the WD 2-10-0 and not KR, or are Ellis Clarke doing one aswell?
