Model Catalogue Information

YEAR INFORMATION
1994 Some Princesses had rather long names necessitating specially designed nameplates! The prominent metal attachment running forward from the cab represents the reversing rod. The blue livery and early lion totem indicate the period as 1949-51. Tender powered by Type 6 ringfield motor. Suitable coaches are R.442 and R.443.
1995 As with the Duchesses, the Princesses were designed by the LMS for their express locomotive fleet. This locomotive is resplendent in the experimental blue livery of the early 1950s and includes separately fitted hand rails and whistles. The locomotive tender hides the Type 6 ringfield motor. Suitable coaches are R.442 and R.443.
