The Bigjigs Rail Heritage Collection offers a delightful range of replicas from the golden age of rail, including the Dwight D. Eisenhower. Originally known as Golden Shuttle and numbered 4496 in 1937, the Dwight D. Eisenhower was then renamed after World War II and renumbered 8 in 1946, under Edward Thompson's LNER 1946 renumbering scheme. After nationalisation in 1948 British Railways renumbered it 60008. It was retired from service in 1963 and moved to the National Railroad Museum in Green Bay, Wisconsin, United States. The packaging includes information about the evolution and working life of the engine. A great addition to any wooden train set. Encourages creative and imaginative role play. Magnetic couplings ensure compatibility with all other engines and carriages in the Bigjigs Rail range. Most other major wooden railway brands are compatible with Bigjigs Rail. Made from high quality, responsibly sourced materials. Conforms to current European safety standards.

Unexpected bonus

My six year old grandson has loved trains since he started crawling and watched his cousins play with our wooden train set but he has far outstripped their enjoyment . He now owns an enormous train set with most of the accessories from big gigs . We are always looking for something to add and he loves these vintage trains . The added advantage for our clever boy is that he has a voracious appetite for knowledge and will want to know all about Eisenhowerso thats a bonus!

Hours of fun

My son has always loved trains and has built up a collection of wooden tracks, trains and accessories. Now he's a bit older he appreciates these heritage locos and still enjoys playing with them. A classic toy.

Another great train

We were very pleased to find the Eisenhower - a perfect companion to the Mallard! It’s well designed and well made, great for a train fan!
