Our worst kept secret, the LNER (Promotional) Class W1, 'Hush Hush' (R3842) is in stock!

The first reference to 10000's designation as Class W1 was on 9 November 1926, but where the widely adopted name of 'Hush-Hush' came from is disputed. It could be that the nickname arose in the late summer of 1928, as news of Gresley's new locomotive began to leak out.

On 20 November 1929, nameplates were drawn up featuring the name British Enterprise and were cast soon after, but these plates were never fitted and the loco remained unnamed, being referred to as 'Hush-Hush' ever since.

This unique locomotive is a head turner with its unusual design and apple green livery.
