"It was exciting to be involved in the development of the iconic A3 Class for 5" gauge. There were 78 A3's in service and many well known names including "Flying Scotsman", often acclaimed as the most famous locomotive in the world. I am sure this 3 cylinder model will delight. As an award winning professional model maker I am proud to have been involved in the design and testing of this beautiful model"

Mike Pavie

AN OFFICIAL LIMITED EDITION OF 50 MODELS!

Having concluded a licence agreement with SCMG Enterprises Ltd we are delighted to offer our A3 Class “Flying Scotsman” as an official production of the National Railway Museum  in commemoration of the locomotive’s 100th anniversary. Each model will be issued with a numbered Certificate of Authenticity attesting to its status as one of only 50 models in this strictly limited worldwide production. This professionally built coal fired, live steam, locomotive must be amongst the most prestigious commemoratives available. It is a model designed to stand the test of time, a family heirloom to be passed on through the generations. Fine scale working models can represent a great investment, keeping their value while so many other possessions depreciate. This is an opportunity not to be missed for the serious “Flying Scotsman” enthusiast.

The LNER A3


The A3's were a development of the earlier A1 Class under the direction of Sir Nigel Gresley. He designed the new Pacifics to haul 600 ton trains. 51 of the locomotives originally designated as A1 were converted to the new A3 classification with increased boiler pressure and new cylinders.

27 new locomotives were built to the A3 standard. Thus, a total of 78 A3 Class engines were in service. All locomotives received double chimneys by 1960 and subsequently most were fitted with German style "trough" smoke deflectors following complaints from drivers in respect to poor visibility. 4472 was the first steam locomotive to be officially recorded at 100 mph.

The A3's saw service over most parts of the LNER system. The final locomotive, 60052 was withdrawn in 1966. Before the war the A3's were painted in LNER green livery, but carried unlined black 1939-45. They were re-painted in LNER green following the war. A majority of locomotives then carried BR blue livery before all were re-painted in BR brunswick green with orange/black lining. Early, or later, lion crests were carried according to period.


The Model...

This coal-fired model features three cylinders and outside Walschaerts valve gear. The copper boiler is silver soldered and hydraulically tested to twice working pressure, CE and UKCA marked. The body casing is assembled using etched brass sheet. The development of this model has been supervised by our award winning professional engineer Mike Pavie and the batch is being built by the same manufacturer who supplied our much acclaimed Coronation Class locomotive.

The A3 Class model is supplied fully built and ready-to-run, painted and lined in either LNER green, or BR lined green. We will supply your choice of nameplate. As testament to our confidence in the quality of this model each locomotive will be supplied with a full 5 year warranty. All models will be subject to a pre-delivery inspection and boiler test. Our after sales service is considered by customers to be second-to-none.
