Bagnall "Monarch"



The model is produced by Golden Arrow and is basically a "superstructure only" kit. So I have been looking for a suitable drive ever since I bought the kit. I am also figuring out a way to make two outside framed bogies with Walschaerts' gear.

The kit comes in a simple sturdy box, not fancy but fit for the job.


This is what you get for £35 (€40): a reasonably well cast white metal kit.


What you get is essentially a headstart for a scratch building project.

Most detail parts are absent or crude so I may be in for a lot of sourcing of brass cast parts.

Golden Arrow recommend obtaining two Ibertren Cuckoo chassis to power the locomotive but as there unprototypical and not readily available anymore I will have to find better solution.
