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.
Many of the B17 locomotive class were named after football clubs and invariably held a special place in the hearts of local communities associated with a football club of the same name. On many occasions these locomotives headed football specials for supporters to be taken to the 'away' match by their namesake engine. The locos were normally cleaned and polished to pristine condition for the day's outing. This set is representative of just such a typical East Coast Express train and would have been a familiar sight on the Eastern Region of British Railways during the mid to late 1950s.
