Model Information: During the locomotive trials of 1948 the then fledging British Railways Board experimented with different locomotives to see how they performed on tracks outside their normal region. Part of the trials were to try different combinations of locomotives and tenders which resulted in the classic pairing of Bulleid’s West Country “Bude” and a Stanier Tender.
To celebrate the 60th Anniversary of not only the locomotive trials but the formation of British Railways, 2008 limited edition models of “Bude” coupled to a Stanier tender, complete with numbered certificate have been specially prepared and are presented in a commemorative pack with authenticating certificate.
