order book closing Nov 30th
The GT3 was designed and built in 1958 by English Electric at their Vulcan Foundry works in Vulcan Village, Lancashire. Built on a strengthened steam chassis and tender with a Gas Turbine power source. The locomotive had a designed maximum speed of 90 mph (140 km/h), weighed 123.5 long tons (125.5 t), and was painted in a lined Beech Leaf Brown Livery, earning it the nickname "The Chocolate Zephyr" amongst railway enthusiasts. Underframes, grilles and the front access and cab doors were painted Brunswick Green with lettering and lining in Orange.
I would like to give a special thank you to Tim Coles, without who's participation this would have never happened.
