68XX 'Grange' pre-production sample
The 'Grange' 4-6-0 is one of the best loved GWR 4-6-0s and the Masterpiece Models rendition of it is exceptional. The Swindon Standard No.1 boiler combined with smaller coupled wheels than the 'Hall', plus the distinctive raised running plate over the cylinders, are all perfectly captured here. For the 'Grange' we have also produced a model of the very attractive Collett 3,500 gallon tender – available with the locomotive or as a separate item. In fact, you can correctly specify your Masterpiece Models 'Grange' with the Collett 3,500 gallon or 4,000 gallon tender, or in some cases a Hawksworth 4,000 tender. All the options are show in the photographs. Not show is the Churchward 3,500 gallon tender which is also available.
Please note that the protective film over the cabside windows is still in place in these photographs.
