Hornby’s new LMS Princess Coronation is an impressive addition to the developing world of TT:120 scale. Accurately replicating Stanier’s most powerful steam locomotive design, ‘Duchess of Abercorn’ is the perfect addition to any TT:120 model railway. Buy now from the Key Model World Shop.

Recognised as the pinnacle of express passenger locomotive design, the Princess Coronation Pacifics were designed by Sir William Stanier for the LMS to haul the heaviest trains unaided up the West Coast Mainline. Built in batches, the first of the 38-strong class entered service in 1937 and featured many design differences, most visibly with 23 carrying distinctive ‘bathtub’ streamlined casings, before all appeared in a conventional form under BR.

Hornby’s three initial releases of the LMS Coronation Pacifics depict the powerful lines of the non-streamlined examples, including the early BR guise of 46234 ‘Duchess of Abercorn’ in lined British Railways green (TT3012M).

The model accurately replicates the class in late BR condition right down to minute detail differences, including double chimney, full running plate and finely-rendered smoke deflectors. Internally, the Duchess features a Next18 DCC decoder socket in the tender, pre-fitted 15mm x 11mm cube speaker and powerful 3-pole motor. Suitable for the late 1950s and early 1960s (era 5), ‘Duchess of Montrose’ is an eye-catching addition to any TT:120 model railway alongside Hornby’s BR-liveried Period III and Mk1 carriage ranges.

Product highlights include:

  • 46234 ‘Duchess of Montrose’ in BR late crest lined green

  • DCC ready with a Next18 decoder socket

  • Factory fitted 15mm x 11mm cube speaker

  • NEM standard couplings

  • Imposing locomotive ideal for any layout set between 1957 and 1963 (era 5)
