Beyer Peacock built two 0-6-0T locos for the newly constructed Welshpool & Llanfair Railway in 1903. These small but powerful narrow gauge locos were taken over by the Cambrian Railway when it acquired the line and then by the GWR at the grouping. The Great Western rebuilt them with typical Swindon details, copper-capped chimneys and brass safety-valve bonnets and both The Earl and The Countess survived the closure of the line to be preserved by the present day W&LLR. Our model depicts the locomotive as running on the railway in 2008.
It is available in either GWR Green or BR Black. Name and number plates are provided for both the Earl and Countess. The engine is re-gaugeable from 32mm to 45mm by the customer.
