This is an original OO gauge steam train in its original box. It is an LNER 525 Peppercorn 4-6-2 steam engine with an 8-wheeled tender. Both the locomotive and the tender are in a striking deep green colour. This model steam train has been tested and is in full working order and runs very well. It would be a perfect addition to any model enthusiast’s creation.
We have a wide range of OO gauge engines and carriages as well as OO gauge 1:76 model buses and trams – all perfect for your railway models!
On the Perfect Pieces website we have a large selection of diecast models and OO gauge trains and carriages for sale. Pieces range from Corgi limited edition model buses to fine Hornby and LIMA locomotives.
Trains and models are collected for all sorts of reasons but many people collect them to expand the model worlds they create. If you’ve never seen a model world then you’ll be amazed. The time, effort and detailing that goes into them can be superb. The National Railway Museum at York has a fine example stretching some distance through two galleries. This museum is certainly worth a trip even if you’re not an enthusiast. With free entry it really is fascinating and you can spend hours wandering around the full size locomotives, watching films and browsing the archives.
If you have created a model world built around trains, buses or anything else at all, then leave us a comment or email us a photograph which we can publish on the blog – we’d love to see your creations.
—– UPDATE —–
Here are some pictures from a model creator we’ve had sent in. It looks amazing with huge amounts of detail gone into both the scenery and track layout.
This is a 1:76 scale Corgi HMS Coastguard double decker balloon tram, the same scale as the OO gauge popular with railway model enthusiasts. It is travelling on route to Starr Gate and is advertising the HM COASTGUARD SEARCH AND RESCUE on its side.
This is a Corgi OOC Original Omnibus Company model OM41215 limited edition double deck bus in its original presentation box. It is a super model perfect for a collector of 1:76 scale models, OO gauge railway enthusiasts, model bus collectors or indeed anyone collecting memorabilia relating to Yorkshire!
This double decker bus is a Wright Eclipse Gemini Yorkshire Motor Services bus on route 105 to Cottingham The Lawns.
