A BRAND NEW un-opened 00 gauge Midland Compound Class locomotive developed by “Bachmann Branchline” as part of their latest DCC READY series. This locomotive is offered in BR Black Late Crest no. 41157 and complete with all paperwork accessories and packaging!
Midland Railway 1000 Class is a class of 4-4-0 steam locomotive designed for passenger work. They were known to reach speeds of up to 85 mph. Deeley and Johnson engines are considered by some to have been the only really successful compound locomotives ever to work in this country.
No. 1000 was set aside for preservation after withdrawal in 1951 and restored in 1959 close to its 1914 condition, painted in Midland maroon livery, running enthusiasts’ specials until placed in the temporary Clapham Transport museum. Though steamed since preservation, it is currently a static exhibit at the Barrow Hill Engine Shed at Derbyshire, having been lent by the National Railway Museum in York.
