| Description

Many of the B17 locomotive class were named after football clubs and invariably held a special place in the hearts of local communities associated with a football club of the same name. On many occasions local football supporters were conveyed to the ‘away’ match by their namesake engine, usually cleaned and polished to pristine condition for the day’s outing. This set is representative of just such a typical East Coast Express train and would have been a familiar sight on the Eastern Region of British Railways during the mid to late 1950s.

The track circuit in this set can be extended to fully complete the included MidiMat layout by using additional track and accessory packs, creating an exciting and fully functioning model railway.

East Coast Express - a bit over Priced :|

For £174.99 - a little over priced for what you get - you don't even get a siding or an extra Carriage, with that box that size I would expect a siding & a extra Carriage - you get a siding with the West Coast Highlander, Flying Scotsman & the Gloucester City Pullman just to name a few - the only thing extra is the Red Plastic Railer (& you don't put that in the Contents list on the E. C. E. Web Page either!!!) Apart from that a Good mid-sized Runner & I like the little red, gold & light blue colours underneath the name plate & above the middle wheel - nice touch!!! :)
