The latest arrival for the National Collection in Miniature series from Locomotion Models is the stunning Wainwright 'D' 4-4-0. Join Mike and Richard in the Workshop as they discuss this new arrival and don't miss our full review either in HM170 or here at KeyModelWorld.
The National Collection in Miniature is expanding with the arrival of one of the most sought-after items in the Railway Museum – Wainwright ‘D’ class 4-4-0 737. MIKE WILD falls for the charms of the latest Locomotion Models ‘OO’ gauge locomotive in this review which features video and extra images.
At the turn of the 20th century, the 4-4-0 was the most popular wheel arrangement for passenger work, so it was natural that when the South Eastern & Chatham Railway was looking to upgrade its fleet it opted for some, with the resulting ‘D’ class amongst the most handsome locomotives of the period, as EVAN GREEN-HUGHES describes.
