A new Ivatt 2MT 2-6-0 locomotive has been added to the Bachmann Brassworks range of O gauge locomotives and has now been distributed to dealers by Bachmann Europe Plc.

128 Ivatt 2MT Class 2-6-0 locomotives were built between December 1946 and September 1952. Entering service with the London, Midland & Scottish Railway, construction continued under British Railways after Nationalisation in 1948. Light axle loadings allowed them to be used on branch line passenger and freight duties and their almost enclosed cabs made them ideal for working tender first when no turning facilities existed. The Class could be found at work on all but the Southern Region of British Railways. The introduction of diesel multiple units and branch line closures resulted in the class being withdrawn between 1961 and 1967, a year before the end of steam on British Railways. Seven locomotives have survived to work on heritage railways.

The new Bachmann Brassworks Ivatt 2MT locomotive is available in either brass finish (BW075) or in factory painted unlined black livery (BW076). A further version in unlined green livery (BW077) will be released later. The recommended retail price of the brass locomotive is £1019.95 with the pre-painted version at £1057.00. Further details are available from Bachmann dealers.

To follow on from the Brassworks 2MT news...

Gauge 1 Bachmann Brassworks 45xx available

Bachmann Europe Plc has released its seventh Gauge 1 (1/32nd scale) Brassworks locomotive depicting the Great Western Railway 45xx and 4575 Class prairie tanks. Models of both types have been released to dealers.



175 45xx and 4575 Class 2-6-2T locomotives were built between 1906 and 1929 by the Great Western Railway. The first 20 locomotives were built at Stafford Road, Wolverhampton being the last locomotives to be built there with later construction taking place at Swindon. After the first 75 locomotives had been built (4500 - 4574), the water tank design was altered from flat top to sloping increasing water capacity by some 3,000 gallons. From No. 4555 onwards (built 1924), a larger coal bunker was provided, again increasing capacity.

Intended for branch line passenger and freight use they saw service mainly in the West of England and in Central and South Wales. The first withdrawal took place in 1950 and the last in December 1964 due to the introduction of diesel multiple units and widespread branch line closures. 14 locomotives have been preserved for use on Heritage Railways for which they are ideal motive power.

Both versions (45xx and 4575 Class) are available from Bachmann Brassworks dealers in both brass finish and factory painted green livery. The 45xx in brass finish (BW1100) has a recommended retail price of £725 and the painted version (BW1102) £775. The prices are the same for the unpainted 4575 (BW1150) and the painted version (BW1152). Further details are available from Bachmann dealers.

Please let me know if this news is of interest. Do any readers or members here model these scales and buy these locos?

Always interested in the larger scales Doug but don't actually model in these (O or 1 gauge).
