Bulleid Leader class 0-6-0 + 0-6-0
Loconotion Models of Peacehaven, East Sussex are pleased to announce that they have approached Dapol with a view to commissioning a new ready to run locomotive. The model will be the experimental Bulleid Leader, and will be in OO Gauge.
It is envisaged that four liveries will be available, two grey versions, one with the BR totem and one without, one lined black, and one purely hypothetical lined green (assuming acceptance into traffic by BR). The model produced will be numbered 36001 in all liveries, and will be a limited run of 2000. There will be a further limited run of weathered versions in all liveries. The model is expected to be of a very high specification, with a five pole motor, cardan shaft drive, directional and interior lighting.
David Young, owner and proprietor of Loconotion models said "We are very excited about this project. It is our first commission, and as the Locomotive was only built a few miles down the road in Brighton, we felt that along with its unique design, the fact that it was a local project makes it a worthwhile subject for a ready to run model."
Because Loconotion Models is a small family run business, the commission will not proceed until sufficient orders are confirmed.
