LNER 4-6-2 CLASS A4 "COMMON WEALTH OF AUSTRALIA"
1930's Britain was a place of luxury, glamour and boundary pushing, and so Chief Mechanical Engineer, Nigel Gresley designed the A4 to pull eight or nine passenger carriages at high speed.
The A4 Express Pacific locomotive thus epitomised the fascination of the time with its streamlined, aerodynamic looks to optimise the loco's power and speed.
On 3 July 1938the A4 reached a speed of 126mph breaking not only the British record but also World record - this record remains unbroken to this day!
This is your opportunity to own one of only 1500 Limited edition Class A4's at a really good price!
