This fine model in 5” gauge of a London Chatham And Dover Railway 2-4-0 Europa Class locomotive was photographed at the London Model Engineering Exhibition at Alexandra Palace in 2013. These elegant locomotives were designed by William Martley, and four were built by Sharp Stewart & Co in 1873. Under Kirtley they became the C class. They were used for Dover boat expresses and the crack mail trains to the Channel port. The model is in approx 1880 condition.
