As new EX-SHOP STOCK display model 00 gauge example especially developed by “Hornby Model Railways” as part of their DIGITAL series. This Class W4 PECKETT in green is named ‘DODO’ comes complete with all paperwork, accessories and packaging!
The Peckett W Class was comprised of six separate variations, from the W2 of 1884 to the W7 of 1938 and was of a standard design that represented more of an update over the years, rather than a development of the class. The W4 design represents a classic late Victorian four-coupled, medium range, industrial saddle tank design.
The locomotives were built at the Atlas Engine Works in St. George, Bristol, Peckett & Sons Ltd having taken over the business established there by Fox, Walker & Company in 1880. Their steam locos, noted for their fine rivet work on the cabs and tanks and the generous use of brass and copperwork, continued to be built at Atlas Works until June 12, 1958.
