Feature: New Build Models

New Build Steam

Introduction
This article takes a look at the opportunities that exist for you to have a new build locomotive of your own – at scale, of course. There certainly seems to have been some influence by the new build movement on model makers, with models available for purchase of several classes that surely would have been considered too obscure to merit such a treatment a decade or more ago.

Inevitably this is a non-exhaustive run-down. Hopefully it gives a fair overview of models currently available, but further information is invited in the comments about both items available to buy now, and models previously on sale but now discontinued, which are necessarily harder to research.

The models listed here aren’t reviewed and inclusion isn’t a recommendation – the intention is solely to give an idea of what models are currently on the market of classes being given the new build treatment.
