An expanded version of the Hornby gauge 0 Southern Railway "Folkestone Flyer" train set's loco and carriages. This train is on the central gauge 0 model railway layout, and is often run on the Museum's Train Running Days.

The train's components are also listed separately.

The standard Folkestone Flyer set consisted of;

  • One green Southern No.2 Special loco, numbered "1759", with tender
  • Two green Southern No.2 Corridor Coaches
  • One green Southern Composite Corridor Coach
  • track and terminals

Our train also has one additional No.2 Corridor Coach, and one additional No.2 Composite Corridor Coach, and is also trailed by a green "Southern" pair of the less expensive No.1 Corridor and No.1 Corridor Composite coaches, and a green gas cylinder wagon.
