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
"I am absolutely delighted with my Kingscale G3
Britannia. It fully lives up to the promise outlined in
the brochure. All concerned in the research, design and
creation of this model deserve praise for making a
superb piece of mechanical engineering at an affordable
INTRODUCING THE STUNNING BRITANNIA CLASS FOR 3.5" GAUGE.
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.
The Britannia Class model is built to a near exact
scale of 1/16th. Beautifully detailed it is designed to run on
3.5" gauge track and is coal-fired.
Each model comes complete with a silver soldered copper boiler,
hydraulically tested to twice working pressure. We supply fully
compliant certificates for the boiler . As testament to our
confidence in the models we supply we offer a full 12 months
warranty on every product.
The brochure is presently in design and will be available early
