5101-type 4 EPB

£640.00 inc vat

The early batches of 4 EPB units, 5001-5053 delivered in 1951 and 5101-5137 delivered in 1954, perpetuated the high roofline of the 4 Sub fleets that had preceded them.

5001-5053, however, were originally equipped with non-standard 9ft wheelbase ‘Eastern’ type motor bogies whereas units 5101 onwards had the de-facto standard ‘Central’ type that is represented by Eastleigh Model Rail motor bogies.

What's in the box -
