Hornby R2568 Devon Belle Watersmeet West Country Class with 3 Pullman Coaches Limited Edition DCC ready 

The "Devon Belle" Pullman was inaugurated in 1947 by the then Southern Railway where it operated between Waterloo and Ilfracombe, with a section of the train running to Exeter and Plymouth. The service was not daily but was scheduled to run on Mondays, Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays in each direction, however, in 1948 an additional down service was operated on a Thursday. The service continued for several years with minor alterations to the train's formation and timing but in 1954 due to falling demand, the service was cancelled. The Great British Train Pack and additional coach pack are representative of sections of the "Devon Belle" during the heyday of the service with each train pack containing a numbered limited edition certificate.

Pack contains:

  • BR 4-6-2 "Watersmeet" West Country class locomotive
  • Pullman 3rd class kitchen car "No. 61"
  • Pullman kitchen car "Iolanthe"
  • Pullman 3rd class parlor car "No. 36"
