Hornby OO Railroad BR 71000 Duke of Gloucester Standard Class 8 4-6-2 Pacific BR Green Late Crest R3168


Hornby Railroad range model of the only BR standard class 8 4-6-2 pacific locomotive, 71000 'Duke of Gloucester' featuring basic detailing, producing a more robust model.

Following whithdraw 71000 was sent to the South Wales scrapyard of Woodham brothers, where a steady flow of goods wagons for scrapping saw the steam locomotives stored. Dubbed 'Project Impossible' due to the removal of two of the locomotives cylinders, one of which was used as a museum display showing the Caprotti valve gear, new cylinders were cast and 71000 has returned to operation on the mainline.

This model is produced with basic, moulded detailing, designed for handling on layouts and suitable for younger modellers. The Railroad range locomotives feature the same drive mechanisms and bodyshells as the collectors versions and represent and excellent base for custom and super-detailing projects to recreate the 'Duke' at a specific date.
