Offering a new 00 gauge example locomotive especially developed by “Hornby Model Railways” as part of their DCC READY series. This engine is BR Green Late Emblem 4-6-2 Class 6MT “Clan Macleod 72008” model R2847.

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!

    Br Standard Class

    I just wanted to confirm that this order (11/09/2022) for the ‘Clan MacLeod’ arrived safely yesterday (13/09/2022). I’m delighted and giving it a special place among my BR standard / last steam locomotives.

    Thank you for high-quality service (good use of the historic Wrenn name) – and for avoiding the postal strike!
