A4 4498 Sir Nigel Gresley LNER Blue Preserved Double Chimney

One of the most iconic locomotive of all time and certainly one of the most handsome. 

The A4 Locomotive was designed by Sir Nigel Gresley and came into service in 1935. 35 were made and all were named. Perhaps the most famous of all, Mallard, reached a speed of 126mph in 1938 and still holds the record for the worlds fastest steam train.

A4 Pacific Locomotives were in service until the 1960’s and several, including Mallard survived into preservation.

Dapol's fine rendition of the Pre-1947 A4 includes the following:

  • Finely moulded body and tender with many separately added fine details
  • Models include tender and chimney variations
  • DCC Ready - NEM651 6-pin socket
  • Cast Wheels with fine relief and appropriate colouring
  • Dapol's tender drive system that delivers power to the locomotive wheels
  • Tungsten chassis and all wheel pick up
  • Super Creep Motor for controlled pulling power with fine slow speed control
  • Finely etched name plates
  • Includes Magnetic Couplers Fitted (Standard couplers are in the accessory bag)
  • Accessory bag with spares and other added
