Scale model of 'Princess Elizabeth', 1950
A very fine, exhibition standard, 5 inch gauge working scale model of the 1933 LMS Class Stanier Pacific 4-6-2 Princess Royal Class locomotive and tender ‘Princess Elizabeth’ (No. 6201). The model has a copper boiler, with Walschaerts’ valve gear, and is complete with boiler test certificate. The model sits on a track which is set within a free-standing glazed
hardwood display case. English, circa 1950.
Length of case overall: 98 inches (248 cm)
Length of locomotive: 82 inches (208 cm).
LMS No. 6201 was built in Crewe for London Midland & Scottish Railway (LMS) to a design by Sir William Stanier in November 1933. Named after the eldest daughter of the Duke of York (now our present Queen), ‘Princess Elizabeth’ was a sensation, and marked the transformation of the LMS fleet, shattering the London to Glasgow (and return) record three years later in 1936, putting LMS on an equal footing with LNER.
