| Description

The original streamlined shape of the Coronation class arose from tests conducted by the LMS Research Department on Sir William Stanier’s previous development of the Princess Royal class locomotives. Stanier was said to be ambivalent about the economic value of streamlining, but was aware of the publicity value that such a design would generate.

6221 Queen Elizabeth was the second of the class to be built, leaving Crewe Works in June 1937 for Camden Shed and covering just under 31,000 miles that year, compared to nearly 68000 in 1938.

In 1939, 6221 moved to Crewe North for a month, briefly returning to Camden before being allocated to Polmadieon November 25, 1939. Whilst here, the streamlined casing was removed on June 28, 1946.

As Good As It Gets...The best Coronation model ever!

Nothing I can really add to what other reviewers have already said about this magnificent model. Beautiful to look at and performs like a dream. A major step-up from the previously issued models. Not a criticism but it would have been nice to have been able to purchase a gloss finished model. Perhaps something for Hornby to think about for the future. How more magnificent would 'Coronation' look in an ex-works finish.

Worth every penny.

I had my doubts about the new Coronations as I own many of them. However they are different enough and the quality is so much better that the price tag is worth it. An amazing performer that also looks the part. However got to say, Hornby where are the coaches and I do not mean the awful 1980s ones that are available. You have had the new Staniers out for some years now so why not in this livery.

The best as it gets

Hornby have done themselves proud here, having mine just arrived on Christmas eve, I think its an incredibly realistic loco, such an improvement from Hornby R3339 "Duchess of Hamilton." There are several firsts such as Painted cab detail, correct winged headlamps included, removable coal load a first, silver painted on thr centre driving wheels a first for hornby on their Streamlined Princess coronations.
This loco has made into my top 10 of 2018.
I've had fun adding the detail pack to this magnificent loco, very heavy, a strong loco, fantastic build quality. I strongly recommend getting one, you won't be disappointed.
I would love to see LMS NO: 6220 "Coronation" like this, fingers crossed.... Read more
