LMS Suburban Train Pack Era 3

Away from the perceived glamour of the mainline, the real work of the railways took place on a myriad of suburban lines across the country, especially in the great conurbations of the Midlands.
The main requirement for a locomotive working suburban services was to have quick acceleration, efficient braking and good tractive ability, the latter being especially useful when pulling heavy carriages, full of commuters.

Fowler’s 4P 2-6-4T engine was ideally suited to this task, mainly being used on longer distance commuter trains from stations in the big cities of England, as well as being used to bank heavy passenger and goods trains on the West Coast Main Line. Typically hauling sets of Stanier’s 57’ non-corridor suburban stock, thousands of commuters spent their working week travelling back and forth from the cities behind these engines.

This train pack recreates a typical suburban working, with Fowler 4P No. 2238 in LMS lined black and two Stanier 57’ non-corridor Brake Third coaches 20768 and 20769, with Composite 16592, in LMS lined maroon livery.

Hornby train packs offer the perfect way to build your oo gauge collection. Whether it's the romantic world of steam, utilitarian diesel electric range or our future-proofed DCC ready locomotives you desire, there is something to suit every layout. Remember, the DCC ready models can be run on any classic analogue Hornby train sets and are easily upgradable to work under full digital control with the aid of a DCC decoder, should you wish to upgrade. Look out for the blue DCC ready logo.

Each Hornby train pack provides a locomotive with interesting and appropriate rolling stock - coaches or freight - with detailed livery and authentic colour schemes. Browse the perfectly paired multiple units, freight-shunting tank engines and mainline coach hauling locomotives for the perfect additions to your set.
