4464 Bittern Steam Train t shirt by Lawrence Keogh

£ 29.00

This illustration shows ‘4492 Dominion of New Zealand' on its first run with a double tender...or does it!!! The loco is in fact another class A4 loco 4464 Bittern masquerading as its fellow loco! This is not that unusual but tends to be relatively short lived...a quick check reveals that this indeed is no longer the case but she is now running once more as Bittern but retains LNER blue with the right number. She is a member of the same class as the steam world speed record holder Mallard, which is not currently in steam.

Our t-shirts are unique for being wholly made with CoolMax freshFX. CoolMax is a patented fibre designed to wick perspiration and accelerate moisture evaporation, keeping wearers cooler and drier. This wicking feature of the fabric is made possible by micro channels engineered into the profile of and surface of the fibre. These channels are cleverly dimensioned to exploit the surface tension and capillary action of water. Being physical properties of the fibre, these channels endure and do not significantly diminish with wear or washing.

Antimicrobial (freshFX) treatment stops the propagation of odour producing bacteria. This is achieved by embedding silver salt crystals into the structure of the fibre. FreshFX treatment like the wicking is permanent and does not leach out with everyday use. These characteristics ensure the shirts remain cool, dry and odour free regardless of what you might do in them. Performance of the fabric is guaranteed through a certified and monitored manufacturing process.
