Locomotion Models announces the re-release of one of its most popular models to date - the GNR Stirling Single No.1 in Museum Condition.
The Great Northern Railway 4-2-2 No.1 was designed by Patrick Stirling and built at Doncaster in 1870. It remains the only example from the Stirling Single class of locomotives to be preserved. GNR Stirling Single No.1 is part of the National Collection and can currently be seen at the National Railway Museum in York.
This exclusive model from Locomotion Models is available in standard DCC Ready and DCC Sound Fitted at £249.95 and £349.95 respectively, and can be reserved with a deposit on Locomotion Models' website, with delivery expected in Winter 2024.
The Museum Condition model is being produced exclusively for Locomotion Models by Rapido Trains UK. The model has been designed by Rapido using a combination of archival materials and drawings, state-of-the art laser 3D scanning techniques and CAD applications, ensuring its accuracy.
Stuart Brown, Retail & Models Team Leader said, "The first run of Stirling Single in 2015 remains one of Locomotion Models' most popular releases and the most requested model for re-release, so we are pleased to be partnering with Rapido again to produce a second run of the locomotive."
Andrew Hardy, Rapido Trains UK General Manager said, "We are excited to once again be working with our friends at Locomotion Models to re-release the much requested Stirling Single. It has been one of our most requested items and it has been particularly hard to keep this project a secret over the last few months with all the requests and emails!".
