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


A 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.

Aimed primarily at younger modellers these models feature a revised engine-mounted drive mechanism and basic detailing. This does make the model an excellent starting base for super-detailing projects.
