If the items require collection due to size or weight or is requested by the customer the cost of the collection will be deducted from the refund value.

Outgoing postage refunds: The maximum postage that will be refunded is the current least expensive delivery charge offered by Boswells for your region. In the UK this would be our Saver charge and outside of the UK the Airmail charge. As these can change over time please see our Help on Delivery page for exact costs. This means that customers choosing a more expensive despatch service such as Standard or Express in the UK or Courier overseas will receive a partial postage refund unless the delivery service did not meet its requirements.

A small number of items are excluded from return for common-sense reasons and these are marked as non-returnable on their product page. All returns must be agreed in writing with Boswells before customer action is taken.

No. 4079 'Pendennis Castle' was the seventh Castle Class locomotive built at the Swindon works, entering service in February 1924. A year later No. 4079 was transferred to King Cross to work the East Coast mainline up against the ever competitive LNER Pacifics. The trials were undertaken by British Transport Commission to identify the best qualities of the four different schools of thought of locomotive design. No. 4079 was withdrawn from main line service in May 1964 after covering an amazing 1.75 million miles. It was then later sold in 1977 to Hamersley Iron Pty Ltd, a mining company in Western Australia. Whilst overseas 'Pendennis Castle' was briefly re-united with A3 Class locomotive 'Flying Scotsman' when it was on a tour of Australia. No. 4079 then returned to the Didcot Railway Centre in 2000 and is still currently under restoration. The model here captures Pendennis Castle in its current livery of GWR Green
