Award winning OO Gauge Beattie Well Tank
We commissioned Dapol to produce on our behalf the LSWR (SR) Beattie Well Tank 2-4-0WT in OO gauge. Associated for many years with the Wenfordbridge branch while based at Wadebridge these models were commissioned in response to customer demand.
This model was initially designed using the very accurate ‘Laser’ scanning technology with the original scan taking place at the Buckinghamshire Railway Centre in 2009.
