Prototype information4-4-0 steam locomotives were the mainstays of express fleets in Britain in the early part of the 20th Century. The model used for Project 1000, which gives its name to the set, is the Midland Railway 1000 Class, but similar locomotives were employed by all railways of the period.
The most famous "Edwardian" 4-4-0 is, of course, Edward himself.
