'N' GAUGE MODEL OF TORNADO IN STRIKING BLUE LIVERY NOW AVAILABLE
Graham Farish launches 1:148 scale model of new build Peppercorn class A1 Tornado
The A1 Steam Locomotive Trust is pleased to announce its association with and support from Bachmann Europe plc towards the on-going running of No. 60163 Tornado
, the first main line steam locomotive to be built in this country for almost 60 years, thanks to the release of an 'N' gauge model of the Peppercorn Class A1 Pacific 4-6-2 under its Graham Farish brand.
Model railways have captured the hearts and imaginations of boys and girls, both young and old, for decades and now with the introduction of a 1:148 scale version of Tornado, everyone can have an A1 of their very own! It's sure to be in great demand this Christmas. Mark Allatt, Chairman, The A1 Steam Locomotive Trust, commented:
"We have worked in conjunction with Bachmann since the early days of the project to build Tornado
to deliver the popular '00' gauge models of Peppercorn class A1s and now also in 'N'gauge through Bachmann's Graham Farish brand. Despite the tiny size of 'N' gauge, the levels of detail are astounding, capturing the real thing terrifically in her current British Railways express passenger blue and previous BR Brunswick green liveries!"
Graham Hubbard, Managing Director, Bachmann Europe plc "we are delighted to be able to provide this iconic locomotive to N scale modellers for the first time. It is being released in two of the liveries Tornado
has carried since entering service in 2008".
The Graham Farish 'N' gauge model of No. 60163 Tornado
will be available from November 2014 and will be priced at RRP £157.35. If purchased though the official Tornado
all profits go towards the upkeep of Tornado
