Kingscale Live Steam
 "We have previously manufactured the BR Britannia in 2.5" gauge and know how popular this classic locomotive is. Following the success of our 3.5" Coronation Class (Duchess) we know the Britannia will be much in demand. We started the 3.5" Britannia project in January 2018. Two and a half years later we are proud to introduce a model which will take pride of place in your collection. As an award winning model engineer I am delighted to have been involved in the development of this fine model".

Mike Pavie

BR Britannia Class

Designed by R. A. Riddles and introduced in 1951 the Britannia Class was the first British Railways standard design to appear. A total of 55 of the Class were all built at Crewe works with the final engine entering traffic in 1954. With just two outside cylinders it was a practical design built for ease of maintenance. In spite of this the locomotive was a handsome and well proportioned design.. A real favourite among railway enthusiasts. With its 74" driving wheels it was an archetypal passenger express and looks at home, at speed, at the head of a long rake of Mk 1 coaches. Allocated to all regions the locomotives remained in service to the very end of the British steam era with 70013 Oliver Cromwell hauling the final scheduled passenger service in 1968.
