A brand new 00 gauge example especially developed by “Bachmann Model Railways” as part of their LATEST series model reference number 31-477DC. This 0-8-0 Class G2A locomotive is being offered in British Rail (BR) Black with late crest number 49361. A highly detailed version which is also DCC FITTED.
The London and North Western Railway (LNWR) Class G2A was a class of 0-8-0 steam locomotives. They were upgraded from LNWR Class G1 principally by the fitting of a higher pressure boiler. Some of the G2As subsequently received lower pressure boilers on overhaul, taking them back into Class G1.
On nationalisation in 1948, British Railways (BR) received 320 G2As, thus making them the largest ex-LNWR class received by BR. They were numbered in the range 48893-49394 but the number series is not continuous because some numbers in the same range were given to G1 Class locomotives. Unfortunately none were preserved, although a very similar LNWR Class G2 locomotive running number 49395 was.
