Brand: Roundhouse

Product description

Roundhouse Russell is a 16mm scale live steam model of the full size engine, which can still be found working on the Welsh Highland heritage line today.

'Russell' is based on the well known 2-6-2 tank locomotive built by The Hunslet Engine Co. Ltd. of Leeds in 1906, it has undergone a number of updates over the years and the model depicts Russell as she currently appears on the Welsh Highland heritage line.

Being a 2-6-2 wheel arrangement 'Russell' is a substantial model which requires medium radius curves or better.

If your garden railway mimics the welsh highlands hills then this loco would be ideal.
