The Friends of the 502 Group is pleased to announce that an agreement has been reached with E-traction Kits to sell their recently-introduced 4mm scale etched-brass Class 502 kits.

These high-specification kits have been designed so that any combination of unit can be built – including the unit as preserved (driving motor 28361 and driving trailer 29896).

To purchase a kit, please visit, where all the variations are available. However, due to the production process, kits will only be dispatched once a suitable number of orders for a particular variant have been made.

Every kit that is bought will help fund the continuing restoration of the sole-surviving unit, which is currently stored at Tebay, Cumbria. On Saturday 29th October the public will have their first opportunity in over a decade to inspect the interior of the unit as the Group hold the first Tebay Heritage Transport Rally. As well as the unit, there will be a variety of commercial and military vehicles on display. Further information and advance tickets are available from
