Hornby OO Unboxed BR 71000 Duke of Gloucester Standard Class 8 4-6-2 Pacific BR Green Late Crest Railroad Range R3168UB


Hornby Railroad range model of BR standard class 8 4-6-2 pacific locomotive 71000 Duke of Gloucester.
Unboxed model split from Gloucester City Pullman Train Set. Supplied in polystyrene holder with basic detail pack. No retail packaging.

Following whithdrawal 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.
