Always in for a punt when a suitable model of a subject never previously available appears. One fewer subject to attempt a kit build or kit bash in order to have an example on the layout. I'll be after a BR black version, and will probably have to renumber it to 59814 which was definitely on KX shed for a while, unless further evidence of other members of the class in the area turn up.

Very good choice of subject from Sonic: handsome loco, no previous RTR OO model of this or any other GCR tank engine so it fills a gap, and there is a range of attractive liveries. And also it is roomy within, so with a good mechanism design and plentiful weight balanced over the centre of the coupled wheelbase, the new manufacturer has every chance to deliver good performance on track. Nothing like having a winner from your first OO product. (Go on, outdo Bachmann's Fairburn 2-6-4T which is my current reigning champion among large tank loco models.)
