G3 Britannia Class
BR Britannia Class
Designed by R. A. Riddles and introduced in 1951 the Britannia
Class was the first British Railways standard design to appear.
A total of 55 of the Class were all built at Crewe works with
the final engine entering traffic in 1954. With just two outside
cylinders it was a practical design built for ease of
maintenance. In spite of this the locomotive was a handsome and
well proportioned design.. A real favourite among railway
enthusiasts. With its 74" driving wheels it was an archetypal
passenger express and looks at home, at speed, at the head of a
long rake of Mk 1 coaches. Allocated to all regions the
locomotives remained in service to the very end of the British
steam era with 70013 Oliver Cromwell hauling the final scheduled
passenger service in 1968.

1/22.6. Beautifully detailed it is designed to run on 2.5" gauge
