A brand new 00 gauge example especially developed by “Hornby Model Railways” as part of their SUPER DETAIL series. This Class 2800, 2-8-0 locomotive in British Rail Black livery has a running number 2810. This locomotive is boxed brand new and complete without exception!
The class was designed by G.J. Churchward for heavy freight work. They were the first 2-8-0 class in Great Britain. The prototype, originally numbered 97 but later renumbered 2800, appeared in 1903. Construction of the production series commenced in 1905 and continued until 1919. The 2884 Class which appeared in 1938–1942 was developed from the 2800 class and is sometimes classified with it.
Six 2800 class locomotives survive, these being 2807, 2818, 2857, 2859, 2873, 2874, along with nine 2884 class locomotives. A seventh survivor is being used as a donor locomotive.
