Rapido 4-2-2 Stirling

Had to pay up for this one, Out of production. One thing: it doesn't run. Instead, it regally glides, side rods symmetrically swimming, across the British landscape whilst surveying her realm. The level of detail is matched by its extraordinary mechanism.

I'd love one, but modelling in N I doubt they'll ever build it. Heck! We can't even get a J72, and they were in service for 60 years and all over the LNER system pre and post grouping.

Dapol and Graham Farish both made an N J72. I’m sure it will return.
