DUCHESS CLASS - GAS FIRED LIVE STEAM

Many believe the mighty Duchess Class would have taken the world speed record for a steam locomotive if presented with the opportunity.

In our opinion the LMS Duchess Class is the ultimate Gauge 3 model. The model design was specified by Mike Pavie who has previously built a number of Duchess Class locomotives for private customers. The model of City of Birmingham illustrated is representative of the Class when re-built in un-streamlined form.

This gas fired, live steam, model has been under development for 12 months. It features four working cylinders just like the full size prototype. The etched brass casing is constructed by hand to accurately re-create the dramatic lines of the original.

The model features a silver soldered, multi-flue, copper boiler built to the highest standards. It is fired by a near-silent, highly efficient, gas burner fitted with a ceramic fire bed which emits a bright glow visible through the firebox viewing window. The fully sprung locomotive and tender are constructed of stainless steel and brass.

The model will be available in LMS Crimson Lake livery, BR lined green, BR blue and BR maroon. A choice of names and numbers will be offered. The correctly numbered tender will be paired with the locomotive. All models will be built against a firm customer order only. The LMS Duchess Class is the subject of a single batch production in 2018 and once sold there will be no further deliveries of this G3 model until 2021 at the very earliest.

We will only issue a maximum of 10 models worldwide in any one name.
