Sir Nigel Gresley was most famous for his line of Pacific mainline express locomotives, the first of which, the A1, entered service in 1922. The A3 was a modification of the A1 and over time all of the surviving A1s were rebuilt as A3s. 4472 “Flying Scotsman” was built in 1923 and went on to become the most famous steam locomotive in the world setting many records along the way. After the war it was renumbered 103 then, after the nationalisation of British Railways, 60103 and it remained in service on the East Coast mainline until 1963. During its service career it covered over 2,000,000 miles and travelled non-stop from London to Edinburgh in 8 hours. It was sold into private ownership and is today preserved at The National Railway Museum in York.
The model features all metal construction with four versions. A Pittman motor powers steel gears to steel drivers. The chassis is constructed from stainless steel. Boiler, cab, tender are constructed from etched brass. Like other fine scale models from Accucraft, it will provide many years of enjoyment.
