Following on from the success of the first four versions of the Beattie Well Tank, Kernow Model Rail Centre has today announced the release of 3314 in Bulleid ‘Sunshine’ livery. 3314 carried this livery between November 1942 and November 1949 when she was renumbered 30585 and gained British Railways early emblem livery.
The Kernow Model Rail Centre announcement is below:
“We are pleased to announce that a fifth Beattie Well Tank has been produced and is currently on board a ship from China due to arrive in the UK at the end of February.
Item reference K2055, this will be number 3314 in Southern Black livery with Bulleid Sunshine lettering and will be priced at £94.99 plus postage.
This model is limited to just 500 pieces and as the previous Southern model sold out very quickly we anticipate demand for this model will be very strong.
Orders can be placed through our website or by phone – or on Kernow Model Rail Centre website here. “
As with the previously released versions the model comes fitted with 6 Pin DCC Decoder socket (conveniently located behind the removable smoke box door, should a DCC decoder be required to be fitted) and an accessory bag containing etched fire irons, coupings, vacuum pipes and SR Route Discs.
