Duchess of Atholl 1949

Hornby Dublo 3-Rail

The long awaited "Duchess of Atholl" one of the first Ready to Run 00 Locomotives produced after the Second World War, she had been due to be released towards the end of 1939.

She is the oldest locomotive at Harrow Park and performs first class and very reliable. She was tested with 6 Hornby Dublo coaches, but I try to limit her to a 3 coach rake due to her age.

This is the first time I have removed the body to look at the motor, even though she has been with me four years. Infact she has never needed a service!
