| Description

The ‘Queen of Scots’ service commenced in 1928, but its development can be traced back to Grouping, in 1923, when the fledgling LNER acquired a number of Great Eastern Pullmans. Instead of allocating them on a piecemeal basis, as the GER had done, the LNER’s management decided to open up a new luxury service to Newcastle, via Leeds and Harrogate.

The Harrogate Pullman was a success and the route was extended to Edinburgh, running non-stop from Kings Cross to Harrogate from the autumn of 1925. From May 1, 1928, when two new 8 car, all-steel Pullman K type sets were introduced for a route extension to Glasgow and the ‘Queen of Scots’ service commenced

Hauled initially by the Ivatt Atlantics, by 1935 the 400 ton, ten car train necessitated the use of A1, A3 and A4 locomotives and even Gresley’s W1 design was allocated at times. At Leeds, two cars were detached from the service, leaving eight to continue on the journey.

This train pack recreates the service in the second half of the 1930s, with Gresley ‘A4’ 4-6-2 4500 Garganey in LNER garter blue, which will be accompanied by all-steel K-Type Brake Third 'No. 77', Kitchen First 'Thelma' and Parlour First 'Sheila'. Roofboards will be fitted to each carriage and a headboard for the ‘A4’ will be included as a separate fitting to complete the model.

queen of scots

I got my train pack from Railsof sheffield,very pleased with it,Hornby are really getting their act together after a sticky start with new suppliers,my a4 has been fitted with dcc and is a superb runner,all tender wheels pick up currant, in the past i have had to adjust the pick ups to get it right,its number is correct 5674,the only tender it ran with all its working life,a small point maybe but if hornby are going to number it, its best to make it the correct one,so very well done hornby,the coachs are superb,the new leds are better than early pullmans,coach boards are seperate,no bother to me ,but others may have liked them fitted,i wish they could be bought as a pack to fit to my other 5 Ktypes to make the full train,any chance hornby! Overall a lovely train pack,well worth 5stars,thanks... Read more

Good Set but no coachboards

The set is good and includes an A4 and 3 K Type Pullman. The only downside is that the coaches dont include any "Queen of Scots" coachboards as advertised in the pictures on both the website and box.

Many thanks for your review. The R3402 Queen of Scots should include the coachboards in a detailing pack included in the box. Please contact your place of purchase, or our Customer Services team, if your Train Pack was missing these boards: https://www.hornby.com/uk-en/contact
