00 Gauge Model of 24 Calbourne Now Available

Designed by William Adams for the London and South Western Railway, 60 of these locomotives were built at Nine Elms Works between 1889 and 1895 primarily for London suburban traffic.  Displaced by more powerful locomotives the O2s were dispersed throughout the LSWR system, their short wheelbase and relatively light weight being particularly suited to restricted branch lines.

As electrification extended and other more modern traction was introduced some examples were transferred to the Isle of Wight from 1923 onwards.  Despite some early withdrawals the O2s lasted well into BR days when branch line closures left all the remaining mainland locomotives withdrawn by 1962.  On the Isle of Wight they continued in front-line service until withdrawn in December 1966.  Two examples remained to work engineering trains during electrification work, one of which survived
 
This preserved example, number 24 "Calbourne", has been laser scanned at the Isle of Wight Steam Railway.

The models will be priced at £124.99 and are available from the railway shop at Havenstreet Station.
 
The shop is open every Saturday and Sunday during November from 10.30 am till 3.30 pm
 
Other model types are available from Kernow Model Railway centre.
