Description

LNWR Webb Waterloo or Whitworth class 2-4-0 no. 90 Luck of Edenhall. This class of loco were essentially renewals of the earlier Ramsbottom Samson class. The model has been superbly built, I believe using the Mercian kit as a basis, but with a wealth of additional detail, including fully working Joy valve gear and inside motion. Also the cab backhead detail is well worthy of note. Beautifully painted by Ian Rathbone it is featured on his superb website.https://www.ianrathbonemodelpainting.co.uk/gallery-1—7mm-scale.php

This must be the only railway locomotive named after an item of glassware? The enamelled glass beaker “Luck of Edenhall” was made in Syria or Egypt in the middle of the 14th century? It is now in the Victoria and Albert Museum.
