Class 502 model on sale on eBay

Posted by Robert Hampton on 26th November 2011 at 10:12 pm

Update: the model has now been sold. Thanks to everyone who placed a bid!

The Friends of the 502 Group are pleased to offer a unique 4mm finescale model of the Class 502 EMU. This model was on display at the recent Tebay Heritage Transport Rally, and is being sold to raise funds to continue the restoration of the unit.

The model – built for the Group by Matt Farrell of E-traction Kits – is a mixture of etched brass and resin parts and has been finished in LMS maroon to represent the unit when it first entered preservation. It is unpowered and fixed to the display plinth, but the successful bidder can opt to have the unit motorised (additional costs may apply). An interior can also be fitted if required (again, an additional charge may apply).

Tebay Heritage Transport Rally Report

Posted by Robert Hampton on 9th November 2011 at 8:52 pm

The Tebay Heritage Transport Rally took place on 29th October. We were unfortunately let down by the weather; heavy rain for most of the day must have deterred some visitors. However the people who did brave the elements were rewarded with various points of interest.

As well as part of the 502 being open for public viewings, a variety of heritage road vehicles were on display.
