Lionheart are pleased to announce the manufacture of the Great Western 45xx 2-6-2 prairie locomotive in die cast metal. As many changes occurred over their lifetime, we shall only be producing models from early 1930 to withdrawal in mid-1960’s. These will include the curved front valance from 4540 to 4554 (with the larger bunker and the packing piece to extend the frames), and 4555 to 4574 with full length frames, totalling 35 engines. All engines were classified 4MT, and yellow routed, being essentially designed for branch line working initially on the hillier routes in the West Country but became more widespread later. The Lionheart 45XX model design is formulated using original drawings.
