The Slow Train Finally Arrives
Heljans model of the Beyer Garratt was announced and ordered in Aug 2011 and after a three year wait it finally arrived. Is a very good model of a specialist loco( the originals were designed to haul heavy coal trains and avoid the need for double heading).
The only problem now is to find enough wagons for it to pull.
