Details

Offering a superb as new 00 gauge example locomotive especially developed by "Hornby Model Railways" as part of their Limited Edition series. This BR Green 4-6-2 Class A3 named "Doncaster" running no. 60048 is commemorating the build of the locomotive at Doncaster in 1924 model reference R2140.

This example is complete in every respect which includes factory packaging, instructions, service sheet and original certificate and outer picture card.

The Class A3 was a Pacific steam locomotive initially built in 1923 for the London and North Eastern Railway (LNER) at Doncaster Works to a design of Nigel Gresley. It was employed on long-distance express East Coast Main Line trains by the LNER and its successors, British Railways Eastern and North-Eastern Regions, notably on the London to Edinburgh Flying Scotsman train service after which it was named.

The locomotive set two world records for steam traction and became the first steam locomotive to be officially authenticated at reaching 100 miles per hour (160.9 km/h) on 30 November 1934.
