Situated on the border between Dorset and Devon, the 6¾ mile Lyme Regis Branch line connected the coastal town of Lyme Regis, in Dorset, with the London-Exeter main line at Axminster, in Devon.
Running through wonderful countryside and across the substantial ten-arched Cannington viaduct, the London & South Western Railway line was opened on August 24, 1903 and stayed in operation until November 29, 1965, when it closed to traffic. On opening, six return journeys operated on weekdays, soon increasing to eight under the L&SWR and by summer 1938, this had increased again to eleven trips. During British Rail operation the normal service steadied at ten trips daily, until 1951 when it dropped to nine, whilst Sunday services were irregular, varying between six to eleven trips during the summer timetable.
The line, with its tight curves and gradients, became synonymous with the operation of three LSWR 415 locomotives, the Adams Radials, which were the mainstay of the motive power on the route for over 30 years.
- - Adam's Radial LSWR 415 class ‘0415’ 30583 in BR lined black with early crests
- - Maunsell ex-LSWR Brake Third ‘S2636S’
- - Brake Composite ‘S6401S’

The elegant, well-proportioned lines of this Victorian locomotive are really captured well and being able to see daylight under the boiler just adds the finishing touch. The 5 Pole motor, along with a die-cast chassis and boiler, gives great smooth slow running characteristics too.

Another Hornby success
From the packaging, presentation and the models themselves this is a superb train pack. The fine detailing on all 3 vehicles is very impressive. The locomotive ran perfectly straight out of the box. The highlight of my collecting this year is owning this train pack. Thankyou Hornby.
