GWR 4-6-0 Star Class 'Lode Star' 4003 - COMING SOON!
In November 2010 ‘Lode Star’ returned to Swindon on loan from the National Railway Museum to be displayed as a major exhibit at STEAM – Museum of the Great Western Railway. In honour of this association STEAM has commissioned Hornby to produce a limited edition model of ‘Lode Star’ to commemorate this fine locomotive. The model is limited to 1000 pieces and is exclusive to STEAM.
Supplied in eye catching packaging together with a numbered certificate of authenticity, this limited edition is expected in Spring 2013, but at present we do not have an exact delivery date. To purchase and reserve your own piece of GWR history, visit our online shop or contact the sales team on 01793 466626.
Lode Star Delivery Update
The Museum would like to thank all purchasers of our Hornby GWR 'Lode Star' 4003 for their patience regarding delivery of our latest model. The Museum has received information from Hornby predicting a June delivery date, and we would like to assure all customers that STEAM will do everything in its power to get your model couriered quickly and safely as soon as they arrive at our premises. The pre-production model on display at the Museum confirms this is a model of the highest accuracy and detail and will be worth the wait. Our Apologies once more for the delay.

New Swindon Works Tunnel Limited Edition model by Bachmann
Painstakingly detailed, this is a reproduction of the historic frontage of Swindon Railway Works in BR days - known locally as the 'Railway Tunnel Entrance' - used by thousands of GWR and later, BR workers, several times daily and for many years.

This model costs £49.95, is a gem for any collector, and is now available exclusively from STEAM.
