A VERY RARE and seldom found example of this much sort after 4-6-2 Streamlined Bulleid Pacific Locomotive named “Canadian Pacific” with later lining. This version in SR Green livery with running number 21C5 was produced for TWO YEARS ONLY. Production commenced in 1990 and continued until mid 1992. During this period only 20 were reported to have been made!!
The locomotive has been fully serviced and comes in original condition, complete in every respect and includes original box, packaging, manual and usual holding rings and tissue! Note: the underneath is clearly stamped as follows PACKER NUMBER 2 PRODUCTION DATE CODE 20592. Confirming build date May 1992!
The SR West Country and Battle of Britain classes, collectively known as Light Pacific’s or informally as Spam Cans, are air-smoothed 4-6-2 Pacific steam locomotives designed for the Southern Railway by its Chief Mechanical Engineer Oliver Bulleid. They were amongst the first British designs to use welding in the construction process, and steel fireboxes. This meant that components could be more easily constructed under wartime austerity and post-war economy!
TO RETAIN ITS VALUE AS A DISPLAY MODEL WE HAVE CHOSEN NOT TO SERVICE. SHOULD ANYONE PURCHASING WISH TO RUN WE WILL SERVICE F.O.C BEFORE DELIVERY!
