othing short of an exceptional STUNNING example of the LMS Coronation Class named “City of Bristol” locomotive! This Streamlined example in L.M.S Black with running number 6244 has been displayed for many years hence its condition. The colours have remained vibrant and the linage intact.
The original locomotive was introduced by Wrenn for a short period circa 1985 model reference W2303. This particular example is one of only 15 reported to having been made from original Wrenn parts by DAPOL after their acquisition of the company. The locomotive is complete in every respect. Due to the build date, includes a replacement box and packaging. Also included is the Wrenn manual, 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.
TO RETAIN ITS VALUE AS A DISPLAY MODEL WE HAVE CHOSEN NOT TO SERVICE. SHOULD ANYONE PURCHASING WISH TO RUN WE WILL SERVICE F.O.C BEFORE DELIVERY!
