BR Standard 4 2-6-4 Tank (lined black)
The Ubiquitous BR Standard 4 Class
Designed by R.A. Riddles the BR Standard 4 Class was first
introduced in 1951. With 155 engines built, and allocated to all
areas with the exception of the Western Region, the Standard 4
was an ever present feature on freight and suburban trains. The
last of the locomotives were withdrawn in 1967 after a
relatively short service life due to the introduction of diesel
and electric services.
However, during their lives they became firm favourites of crews
and train spotters alike. Certainly the locomotive is popular
among our customers across numerous scales due to the affection
felt. Weighing in at 86 tons the locomotive was large and
powerful as well as an elegant design.
The 5" Gauge Model.......
We are in the process of building a batch of 50 models for
delivery this year. The model was 18 months in development
before we opened the order book in January this year, showing a
pre-production example for the first time at the London Model
Engineering Exhibition. We have received and tested two
pre-production models before authorising the start of lot
production in May this year.
The batch is now almost sold out. Once the final models are sold
we are unlikely to make any further deliveries of the 5" gauge
Standard 4 until 2021 at the very earliest.
Each model comes complete with a silver soldered copper boiler,
CE marked and hydraulically tested to twice working pressure. We
supply fully compliant certificates and paperwork including an
EU Declaration of Conformity. Before final delivery to our
customer each model will be subject to an inspection by Mike
Pavie including a 1.5 x hydraulic boiler test to ensure there is
no leakage from the boiler fittings. The model is also run on
air as part of the inspection. We are as thorough as possible in
the development phase and manufacture. Suppliers must agree to
adhere to our specially written Quality Standards Manual. As
testament to our confidence in the models we supply we offer a
full 12 months warranty on every product.
