GWR Pannier Tanks Pack: Announcement

We gave you a little teaser a couple of weeks ago and sure enough we had lots of correct guesses, so well done to whoever thought that the images represented exactly what they were...

Panniers, a wren and a thrush.

Out next pack is going to contain the GWR 5400/6400/7400 Pannier Tank Engines and the BR built Hawksworth A38, A39, A40 and A43 autocoaches (2 of which were named "Thrush" and "Wren".

But one of you went even further than that. Someone suggested (requested? pleaded?) for us to include a brand new, up to date model of the 5700 Pannier Tank as well. Which was our intention all along. We will also include the 6700 and 8750 variants of the 57xx class and lots of options to help you create as many of the 852 original engines as possible.

The pannier tanks are such iconic Great Western engines and we are excited to be able to bring them to you with along with the Hawksworth autocoaches that people have been asking us for since we released the GWR Class 14XX Loco Add-On.

Lots of pictures and information of the work in progress to follow in the coming months.

But what of the BR built pannier tanks we hear you cry? The 1500, 1600 and 9400's? Well, let's get the GWR pack finished first and then we'll see how things are ;-)
