Offering a new 00 gauge example locomotive especially developed by “Hornby Model Railways” as part of their DCC READY series. This engine is in BR (Late Emblem) Green 70044 Earl Haig model R3295.

The Standard class 6, otherwise known as the Clan Class, was a class of 4-6-2 Pacific tender steam locomotive designed by Robert Riddles for use by British Railways. Ten locomotives were constructed between 1951 and 1952, with a further 15 planned for construction.

However, due to acute steel shortages in Britain, the order was continually postponed until it was finally cancelled on the publication of the 1955 Modernisation Plan for British Railways.

The Clan Class was based upon the Britannia Class design, incorporating a smaller boiler and various weight-saving measures to increase the route availability of a Pacific-type locomotive for its intended area of operations, the west of Scotland. All of the original locomotives were scrapped, but a replica is being built.

Locomotive has been inspection. Light lubrication / running in recommended before permanent use!
