Class 08 Locomotive

The body is a one piece highly detailed fibre glass moulding with many refinements.

The side frames are equally detailed with leaf springs, horns and brackets all cast in a super quality aluminium casting.

Buffer plates are laser cut along with the coupling rods.

The whole basis of construction for the 5” gauge is simplicity, needing minimal experience for the beginner but providing such a highly detailed finish for the experienced model engineer.
