Famous Trains Acquires the Capitals United Express

A completely new 'famous train' is our model of The Capitals United Express.

This train ran between Cardiff and London Paddington from 1956 to 1963.

We have modelled it with the famous engine No. 92220 Evening Star pulling a rake of BR mark 1 coaches in brown-and-cream livery, authentic for that train.
