We are a long established Model Railway Shop in Halesowen, West Midlands with excellent connections to M5 Jct.3 & 4.
All the above would not be possible without the enormous support of the volunteers who help to keep the shop running! We thank them very much.
This is a R1202 Mallard Pullman Train Set manufactured by Hornby. On July 3rd 1938, Sir Nigel Gresley's 'Mallard' sped down Stoke Bank, just south of Grantham on the East Coast Main Line and at milepost 90¼, between Little Bytham and Essendine, the locomotive recorded its highest speed of 126mph. Breaking the 1936 world speed record of 124.5mph for a steam locomotive, previously set by a German engine, the record still stands today. This set is representative of a typical East Coast Pullman train and would have been a familiar sight between London and the North.
