Locomotion Models ‘Improved Precedent’

Locomotion ‘Improved Precedent’

The National Collection in Miniature just got bigger with the arrival of the exclusive Bachmann-made model of LNWR ‘Improved Precedent’ 2-4-0 790 Hardwicke. MIKE WILD runs the rule over this historic steam locomotive.

At a time when interest in diesel traction seems to be at an all-time high it is refreshing to see one of the oldest surviving steam locomotives of London &North Western Railway (LNWR) parentage on our review desk.

The locomotive in question is Locomotion Models’ new ‘OO’ gauge model of the LNWR ‘Improved Precedent’ 2-4-0 790 Hardwicke. This compact locomotive was one of 158 in the class which were officially rebuilds from the ‘Newton’ and ‘Precedent’ classes completed between 1887 and 1901.
