Two Bulleid pacifics at work.

34067 Tangmere is a Battle Of Britain class light pacific in original “air smoothed” condition, retaining all of Oliver Bulleid’s novel features.

35028 Clan Line is a member of the heavier, more powerful Merchant Navy class, as redesigned by Jarvis and rebuilt by British Railways in the 1950s (Clan Line was the last one, completed in October 1959).
