Always laugh a minute from Rapido. Here's one patiently waiting for his Stirling Single order to be fulfilled. I am really looking forward to seeing how they have solved the many problems this prototype represents. I suspect it will immediately take the title of best RTR OO steam loco model yet, even with the likes of Golden Age in the mix. It will also be the oldest prototype subject currently available as a RTR OO model, the class entering service only forty-five years after the Stockton and Darlington began what is recognised as the first public railway service.
On a side note I see that Locomotion/NRM are floating the idea of some GNR coaches to go with, a very good plan. If they choose well, such as the last 6 wheelers that lived on to the end of steam, they would be suitable to sell alongside all the GNR and LNER group models that the museum stocks.
