Never catalogued as out of print.
Survived right through to Broadway Approvals in the 1958 color catalogue “Micromodel Kits“, although no significant stocks passed on to the Watford Model Supply Co. in 1971.
It was this set that was used in all the Micromodels advertising of the early period.
Justin Olson, who has built this set, has some remarks about the models:
“ The Edward Henty was one of relatively few foreign locomotives produced by Micromodels. As with the other Micromodels streamlined locomotives, it benefits to shape and curve the paneling before fitting onto the model chassis. The “Edward Henty” was a Victorian Railways S class locomotive which usually headed their premiere Spirit Of Progress express train. Despite their considerate popularity none have survived in preservation.
