BR (ex LMS) 4P compound no. 41186 (scratchbuilt by Laurie Pickard)


Out of stock


BR( ex LMS) 4P class no. 41186. One of the famous Midland Compounds. Built from scratch in nickel silver by Laurie Pickard of Bristol. An elderly model that has for all of it’s life before I bought it, been displayed unpainted in a cabinet. I found this in a Dreweatts auction in Bristol. Now painted by myself and superbly lined out by bow-pen for me by John Cockcroft.

This loco has been superbly built in what I would call a robust style, around a very powerful Bonds type motor/gearbox unit. The pickups are wiper blades to the backs of the wheels. The wheels are of cast iron construction with fine spokes and are slightly thicker than fine scale. They negotiate Peco fine scale track and points well. The Poachers test track at Lincoln was built using Peco track and this loco can fly around there with six blood and custards in tow, no problem.
