Product Info

Number 58 'Tiger' was the sister engine to 'Lion', one of a plethora of locomotives named after animals as became the norm for the fledgling L&MR. Like its sister engine, 'Tiger' was designed as a luggage engine and was delivered from Todd, Kitson, and Laird alongside 'Lion', having been constructed at the same time as part of the same order. These were the first two locomotives to be built at the Railway Foundry in Leeds.

Information regarding 'Tiger' is scant, but as it was built to the same specifications, it is a reasonable assumption that the engine would have served the same duties as its more notable sister. It is also likely that the engine was also rebuilt at Edge Hill in 1841.

Likely still in service when the L&MR was absorbed into Grand Junction Railway and then the London and North Western Railway, 'Tiger' would have also been renumbered under its new operator. As it is not in preservation, it is assumed that at the time 'Lion' was withdrawn and converted into a stationary pump, 'Tiger' was also withdrawn and scrapped..

The solo ‘Tiger’ locomotive features a Next18 decoder socket for DCC operation with a pre-fitted speaker which allows this model to be enhanced on a digital layout. It also features a wood grain print to represent the wooden barrel-like body of the locomotive. More features include separately fitted brass details, a plethora of die-cast and etched parts as well as a stunning electroplated boiler. Crew figures are also included.
