Product Description

Product Description

The Mallard is the holder of the world speed record for steam locomotives at 126 mph . The record was achieved on July 3, 1938 on the slight downwards grade of Stoke Bank south of Grantham on the East Coast Main Line, and the highest speed was recorded at milepost 90¼, between Little Bytham and Essendine. This historical locomotive has been captured in all its glory by Hornby in this oo Gauge locomotive. Highly detailed and superbly finished, the A4 Mallard is a must for all train fantatics.

Manufacturer's Description

The 'Mallard' is famous for holding the world steam train speed record of 126mph, set in 1938. It wasn't withdrawn until 1963. The Mallard was designed by Sir Nigel Gresley, LNER's chief engineer and it is said that the name came to him whilst feeding ducks at Salisbury Hall. The original engine weighed 102 tons 19cwt and featured 6'8 driving wheels.

This classy locomotive is ready for Hornby's Digital Control System and has a detailed cab and semi-fixed tender, spring buffers, NEM couplings and a five pole skew wound motor. Perfect for your long distance express trains.

The train was bought as a present and has provided much joy. It needs to be for an older child or adult due to the fragility of the train. As a product it is excellent and the attention to detail is awesome.
