Hornby has released images of the engineering sample of their new tool OO/1/76 streamlined Princess Coronation Class Loco
Although Hornby has a streamlined Princess Coronation Class Loco in the range they feel that they can make several improvements with a new tool model.
”Looking at the models themselves, we’ve made allowances for (where applicable) a huge number of different features and body detailing. These include a sliding cab roof, flanges over the front bogie (where the cylinder bypass valves had to be hidden), the Hudd ATC apparatus, speed recorders, different handle positions on the front casing, streamlined lamps, the correct sandbox filler caps, brake blocks, different chimneys, slotted front steps, the extra catch on the front casing for those that needed it and extra access panels. This is not forgetting the streamlined tenders, both with and without shroud too.
When added up, these differences and details will offer a model unlike any other out there in the marketplace and that definitely makes the work worthwhile. If, like us, you’ve had a Streamlined Princess Coronation on your mind for years, this model is likely to ‘scratch the itch’ once and for all!”

R3677 - LMS, Princess Coronation Class, 4-6-2, 6229 'Duchess of Hamilton' - Era 3
R3623 - LMS Caledonian Blue, Princess Coronation Class, 4-6-2, 6221 'Queen Elizabeth' - Era 3
