Details

A brand new 00 gauge example especially developed by "Hornby Model Railways" as part of their SUPER DETAIL series.

This locomotive in British Rail Green livery is named Sir Pelleas with running number 30778. A highly detailed version being DCC READY. The LSWR N15 class was a British 2–cylinder 4-6-0 express passenger steam locomotive designed by Robert W. Urie.

The class has a complex build history spanning three sub-classes and eight years of construction from 1919 to 1926. The first batch of the class was constructed for the London and South Western Railway (LSWR), where they hauled heavy express trains to the south coast ports and further west to Exeter.

Along with the Lord Nelsons they were the second biggest express passenger locomotives in the Southern Railway. Following the grouping of railway companies in 1923, the LSWR became part of the Southern Railway (SR) and its publicity department gave the N15 locomotives names associated with Arthurian legend; the class hence becoming known as King Arthurs.
