How to purchase the new locos

Five variants of the SLW Class 24 model are now freely available to purchase and are selling fast. Customers who obtain these models will be given advance information and the opportunity to make future purchases before they are publicly announced. Additional Class 24 liveries and variations are proposed (and some already prepared for production) but they are fully dependant on the success of these first few releases. If you would like to see more models produced by SLW then we encourage you to make an early purchase. These models are only available direct from us and cannot be purchased in shops or from other outlets.
