The model represents 'Lyd' equipped with her Lynton & Barnstaple cab profile and with her chimney set to the L & B loading gauge. It is being produced exclusively for the Ffestiniog Railway by Accucraft and will only be available through the Ffestiniog shop or direct from Accucraft.
The profit from every model sold will go towards the final construction phase of the full-sized loco and help to keep her in traffic. There will be two versions in a strictly limited batch of 100 models, lined Southern Green and fully lined British Railways Black, each with its own numbered certificate of authenticity.
"We are extremely grateful for the assistance given us by Paul and his team in production of our 'Lew'," adds Ian Pearse, of Accucraft. "Having access to 'Lyd' has ensured that our L & B 2-6-2T is as accurate as possible and we hope that we can make a worthwhile contribution to her through sales of this limited edition."
