The Leeds Model Company, established by Rex Stedman in 1912, was after Hornby and Bassett-Lowke the third biggest model railroad maker in the UK in the years between World Wars 1 and 2. From unassuming beginnings the organization became quickly after 1919, and with money from G.P.Keen, moved from custom structure into large scale manufacturing of a first arrangement of institutionalized scale display tank trains. The notable 0-4-0ST was likewise presented right now, alongside other suffering models, the ex GC 4-4-0 'Head servant Henderson', and 4-6-0 'Sir Sam Fay'. Two trains, a GW Churchward 4-4-0 County and Pickersgill Class 72 Caledonian 4-4-0 were delivered for Bassett Lowke in 1922. The parts and tooling for these were later used to produce the LMC GW Mogul and the Pickersgill 0-6-0 products trains.
Different model hk provided as of now were a LMS Claughton, a LNER Ex GN Atlantic, LNER 4-6-2 classes A1 and A2, and an Urie 4-6-2T. Right off the bat in 1920 and to diminish creation costs, and while proceeding to supply hand-manufactured wooden stock, Stedman built up a pre-gathering scope of wagons and mentors utilizing top notch paper lithographs on institutionalized timber bodies. Sharp pulled out of the LMC in 1924, clearing a path for Hugh Leader of the Bristol Model Company. Altogether with this 'West Country' impact, the first GW trains, a Star and Castle showed up in the index. Stedman and Leader were uneasy accomplices in the business in any case, and in 1928, with fund from R.S. Moore, Stedman assumed control over the advantages and generosity of the LMC and for a long time ran the organization under his own name, R.F. Stedman and Co. Ltd.
His kindred executives, Moore and G.M. Simpson, took the organization back under the previous LMC style in 1932, however kept on building up Stedman's ideas and structures to refresh and additionally expand the item extend. The Sentinel Cammell steam railcar 'Annoy' and the Brighton Belle Pullman rake of five mentors were delivered, alongside increases to the private proprietor wagon go and new 'catch logo' lithos for the GW mentor run. Presumably, the most prominent and suffering of the LMC models are the second arrangement of institutionalized tank trains presented in 1935. These six very particular model agency, of which the most ordinarily observed today are the LMS Ex LandY 2-4-2T and the LNER Ex GC 0-6-2T, were financially built to originate from a solitary arrangement of tooling and bites the dust. Shaped Bakelite mentors, wagons and vans were presented in the late 1930's and were a quick achievement. The post WW2 years were troublesome for every single model organization, no less, with its emphasis on '0' Gauge, for the LMC.
