Lionheart GWR 45xx/4575 2-6-2 Prairie Tanks

The compact and powerful Churchward 45xx 2-6-2 prairie tank. This model is continuing under the Lionheart banner, reflecting the predominant use of metal in the construction versus the plastic body moulded shells of the Dapol range locomotives. Development is intentionally longer as effort is concentrated on the main Dapol range, but this allows even more research to be done and incorporated.  This batch is designed to model the curved drop front locomotives with larger bunkers, 4540 to 4554 with rear frame extensions and 4555 to 4574 built new with full length frames.

The Lionheart Trains models are designed to be a premium model with extensive use of diecast techniques, complemented with fine detail moulded from plastic and wire handrails. The tooling is designed to replicate the many changes made to locomotives over their working lives, the major changes needing a completely revised model. This batch of models will replicate the later production Churchward class 45xx 'flat top' engines 4555 to 4574.
Unnumbered model finished in GWR mid chrome green livery lettered GREAT WESTERN. 1924 to late 1930s.
