Description

Stunning locomotives to bring your miniature world to life. Hornby’s stunning model locomotives span the golden age of steam right up to the latest intercity trains. So wherever and whenever your model railway is set, there is a wide choice of engines, all in the correct livery and with appropriate rolling stock available. Whichever you choose, you are guaranteed beautiful, detailed models for any OO-gauge electric layout. Peckett 1426 was built in 1916 for the Glasbrook Bros. at their Garngoch Colliery No.3, which employed 468 men at that time. In 1947, as the coal mines were nationalised, Garngoch came under the NCB’s South West Division, Area No. 1, No. 2 Group, which covered Morlais, Mountain and Brynlliw collieries, but by 1965 the colliery was uneconomical and the men and locomotives were transferred to Brynlliw, which had reopened in 1961 having received a 4.8 million redevelopment. 1426 remained at Brynlliw until closure in 1982, using spares from Peckett 1187 to keep running and was eventually placed in the care of the Swansea Museum, where it is currently in open storage at the Landore Reserve Collection site. Please note, box and model dimensions are shown as identical however only represent the box/package size.
