A BRAND NEW un-opened 00 gauge Class B17 Pacific locomotive developed by “Hornby Model Railways” as part of their latest DCC READY Series. This B17 is named “Leicester City” and comes complete with all accessories and packaging.
The London and North Eastern Railway (LNER) Class B17, also known as “Sandringham” or “Footballer” class. This class of 4-6-0 steam locomotive was designed by Nigel Gresley for hauling passenger services on the Great Eastern Main Line. In total 73 locomotives were built.
The final design of the B 17 Class incorporated many features of the A I Pacifies built in 1924 but several modifications were required before the first B 17 was delivered in late 1928. Between 1930 and 1937 a total of 73 B 17 locomotives were produced by Robert Stephenson & Co. at Darlington and Glasgow.
