"My experience of building several LMS Duchess models for private customers in Gauge 3 provided useful experience for the development of this stunning model of the 4 cylinder Coronation Class. It is a model collectors should not miss"

Customer testimonials

 
"Gentlemen, my Duchess arrived today, superbly packed and totally undamaged.

Please allow me to doff my cap to you both for a model of such merit that the label ‘museum quality’ seems inadequate. One hardly dares to wonder what might emerge next from the Silver Crest stables"

P.N. Australia.



"The after sales service of both yourself and Mike was outstanding in every respect. Thank you all for such wonderful service and in delivering a top class model at a realistic price"

Mr D-M Devon

LMS Duchess Class

Designed by Sir William A. Stanier the first of these magnificent streamlined locomotives was built at Crewe in 1937. With a tractive effort of 40,000lb these 4 cylinder locomotives were extremely powerful and can be seen as a response by LMS to the LNER A4's built less than 2 years earlier. In fact many maintain that if it were not for the storm clouds of World War II gathering that the LMS Coronation could have snatched the world speed record for steam away from the A4 Mallard.

The first locomotive "Coronation" gave its name to the Class and was out-shopped in striking blue and silver livery. A set of nine Coronation Scot coaches were specially prepared in blue/silver livery to match the locomotive. This period represented the height of the golden age of steam with rivalry between the big four companies driving innovation to create some of the most iconic locomotives ever to run on British rails.

The first locomotives out of Crewe works were originally built as streamliners. Later some were built without streamlining. All of the streamliners were finally all rebuilt in un-streamlined form and all eventually featured double chimneys.

The locomotives were produced in a variety of liveries in BR days including maroon, blue and lined green.

Duchess of Hamilton currently preserved and returned to its original streamlined form.
