This new Dapol model of the GWR 57xx class features a diecast metal chassis and running plate for excellent adhesion and a smooth running 5-pole motor geared for fine speed control when shunting. A large number of detail parts have been designed to allow body and cab variations to be replicated, including those engines modified for London Transports' Metropolitan line gauge. Between the frames is a partial representation of working inside motion while the fully detailed cab interior is found below a roof secured by small magnets, making easy access for fitting a crew and working cab doors are fitted where appropriate. Below the footplate the visible sides of the ashpan have been modelled, along with correct style of brake rods.

5775 was one of the small block of the original 57xx series panniers built at Swindon, completed in October 1929. Sent new to Neath the engine remained in South Wales until withdrawn in August 1963. Selected for further service with London Transport 5775 was overhauled and numbered L89.
Withdrawn for the second time in 1970 L89 was sold to the Keighley and Worth Valley Railway, arriving in time to take part in the filming of 'The Railway Children' that year. For the film the engine was repainted into an lined caramel livery and lettered GN&SR for the fictional fictional 'Great Northern and Southern Railway'. 5775 served the Keighley line for many years before being withdrawn in need of an extensive overhaul. For display purposes the engines unique lined caramel GN&SR livery has been restored.
