Steam locomotives

The Great Western Saddle Tank locomotives were mostly seen in goods depots shunting wagons or on small rural routes hauling mixed traffic services. These small locomotives featured the saddle mounted water tanks which gave the locomotive a higher centre of gravity limiting the speed of the loco. As the water tank sits on top of the boiler the water is pre-heated which reduces the loss of pressure found in cold feeding water into the boiler.

These models feature a diecast chassis for added weight and traction, All wheel pick ups for added reliability and separately applied hand rails and pipes for enhanced detail. A great model for any GWR enthusiast.
