Details

An EX_SHOP STOCK example especially developed by "Bachmann Branchline" as part of their recent BLUE RIBAND series. This LNER DARLINGTON GREEN 2-6-2 V2 locomotive no.4806 is named GREEN HOWARD and is fitted with a step tender.

The London and North Eastern Railway (LNER) Class V2 2-6-2 steam locomotives were designed by Sir Nigel Gresley for express mixed traffic work, and built at the LNER shops at Doncaster and Darlington between 1936–1944. The best known is the first of the class, 4771 (later 800 and 60800) Green Arrow, which is the only preserved example.

The V2 was a versatile locomotive, capable of hauling fast fitted freights and express passenger trains. Their relatively heavy 22 ton axle load meant their use was restricted to around 40% of the LNER's route miles. For example, they were barred from all of the former Great Eastern Railway main lines.
