London Transport Museum has announced a new motorised 1:76 (OO) scale S Stock model London Underground train made exclusively for the Museum by Bachmann Europe plc. The motorised set, comprising four cars, including two driving cars, will be available in September 2015 and can be pre-ordered from Saturday 30 May 2015. The first 250 customers to pre-order will receive a special S Stock certificate.
This is the first time a highly detailed ‘ready to run’ London Underground model train has been produced and additional un-motorised individual cars can be purchased to authentically complete either S7 or S8 train formations.
The models are based on the S Stock serving the Metropolitan line on the Underground network and shows Aldgate as the destination. The livery is based on the London Underground approved livery specification as of September 2014.
