A fine exhibition quality 7 ¼ inch gauge model of a 2-6-0 (Mogul) British Railways Standard Class 2 tender locomotive No 78005, built to a very high standard over a period of nine years by Mr J Middleton a respected member of the Oxford Model Engineers Club to the design and drawings by Dick Stockings. It comes with a full sets of drawings and build folder. The locomotive has been repainted in BR standard dark green lined livery and some further work has been carried out by the present owner. This is a very high quality model similar to work by Ron Martin and David Aitken. .

The model is finished in British Railways dark green lined livery with polished bright-work, fine brass detailing to cab windows and detailed plates. The original full size locomotives were built at Darlington in 1953. The locomotive has been meticulously researched, planned and built, and must rate as one of the finest examples of a Class 2 in any gauge.

The model comes complete with a display stand fitted and rolling road. Aluminium rectangular tube trolley with bridge piece, steel tube rail base suitable for use with a Transit type van or trailer.

The model was displayed at the East Midland show 2016 and Spalding 2017 on the Melton Mowbray Model Engineers stand. It was not exhibited as a competition entry as the present owner was not the builder.

Fifty Six of the full size locomotives were built in Darlington between 1952 and 1956 to the design by R A Riddles. No 78005 was withdrawn from service in 1965. The design was derived from the Ivatt designed LMS Class 2MT 2-6-0 with a reduced cab to enable it to fit into a universal loading gauge and other standard fittings, most notably a taller chimney, others including the lack of an Ivatt dome and side plates connecting the two sections of the engine.
