Coal-fired live steam...

 If you want to re-create the sounds, sight, and smell, of the golden age of steam there is no substitute for a real coal-fired engine.

Even the very act of building the fire with wood and small pieces of steam coal soaked in paraffin spirits you away to past times. The crackling of the fire and the aroma of coal smoke mixed with steam make the senses tingle with a sense of anticipation.

In the past two years we have delivered over 100 live steam models to a discerning collectors market. Our previous models were gas fired. Here, for the first time, we offer the ultimate in model steam with our "ready-to-run" coal-fired Britannia Class.

The definitive collector's model...


With the design specified by Mike Pavie, the UK's most prolific builder of gauge 3 live steam models, we are proud to offer this fine scale model in a world-wide limited edition of just 95 pieces, in a choice of names and numbers. "Oliver Cromwell" and "Britannia" will be limited to just 10 of each model. Models will incorporate detail differences to reflect prototypical accuracies.

The largest model railway gauge...

Running on 2 1/2" gauge track models are built to a perfect scale of 1:22.6. Gauge 3 is the UK's largest scenic modelling gauge and was one of the five original gauges officially recognised by the Society of Model Engineers in 1899. We are delighted to continue in this long tradition of offering finely engineered, hand-built, models for the discerning collector.

Collecting and investment....

While we recommend you buy a model for love rather than profit the coal-fired Britannia Class offers a realistic investment opportunity. Certainly mint condition examples of our models are maintaining their value and look likely to show gains in the future. We are so confident in the quality and value of this model we intend to offer a "buy-back" guarantee. Full details with your free brochure.
