E/10 SR 4-4-0 Schools Loco 2013
The Schools class was introduced in 2010 and utilised the same mechanical layout as the original E/1 range with contrate wheel final drive. One of its tag lines was 'Schools out - for the first time since 1939'. The Schools series were supplied with single and Kylchap chimneys. Some Girls Schools were honoured namely Roedean and St Trinneans and several Scottish Boys Schools added to the fictional roster namely Fettes and Goudonstoun. A pink finish was inspired by Lionel's effort in the 1930's.

Some ‘interesting’ alternate liveries for the ACE Schools Class. Maunsell and Malachite Green SR versions and BR Black and Green were also available for those with more conventional tastes.
Loco 1885 ‘Roedean’, the School was requisitioned by the Royal Navy during the war and became a Torpedo instruction outpost of HMS Vernon at Portsmouth.
Loco 1922 ‘St Trinnean’s, a Pink version with crossed Hockey Sticks illustrated within the shield on the tender. This follows Lionel’s example in the pre and post war period which some might argue is not to be encouraged. However, we are in this part of the market to counteract the over seriousness of some in the model train fraternity.
