• Battle of Britain Class 4-6-2 34051 'Winston Churchill' BR OO Gauge

Built at Brighton Works in 1946, the locomotive was named ‘Winston Churchill’ at a ceremony at Waterloo railway station in September 1947. It was allocated to Salisbury locomotive shed for services on the West of England Main Line between London and Exeter and was later re-allocated to the Nine Elms locomotive shed in London, followed by the Exmouth Junction shed near Exeter before returning to Salisbury in mid-1951. The locomotive was used to pull Winston Churchill’s funeral train from Waterloo to Hanborough in January 1965 before being withdrawn later that year on the 19th of September 1965 to be preserved. It entered into the National Railway Museum collection and has since been displayed at York and Shildon.
