Nothing short of a stunning example of the LMS Coronation Class named “Coronation” locomotive! This Streamlined example in Maroon with running number 6228 has been stored for many years hence its condition. The colours have remained vibrant and the linage excellent.
This locomotive was introduced by Wrenn for a short period between 1986-1987 model reference W2302A. This particular example is one of only 100 reported to having been made. The locomotive is complete in every respect, includes its original box inner box date stamped. Also included is the Wrenn manual and additional serviced sheet applicable to the streamline, finally usual holding rings and tissue!
The London Midland and Scottish Railway (LMS) Coronation Class is a class of express passenger steam locomotives designed by William Stanier. They were an enlarged version of the LMS Princess Royal Class. Several examples were originally built as streamlined, though this was later removed. They were the most powerful passenger steam locomotives ever to be built for the British railway network, estimated at 3300 horsepower and making them far more powerful than the diesel engines that replaced them.
NOTE: THE ENGINE HAS BEEN DOWN GRADED DUE TO HAVING A LATER REPLACEMENT BOX LID!
