  1. On 3rd July 1938, Mallard powered its way into the history books, and became an icon for speed, style and steam. With it on that occasion, and measuring every inch of the journey, was the LNER Dynamometer Car, a mobile test bed for assessing locomotive performance, speed and efficiency. Over the decades, many models have been made to celebrate the classic A4 locomotive, but only now has the Dynamometer Car joined the loco in model form – replicating the fastest steam-hauled railway carriage in existence today, and like the loco, part of the National Collection. To celebrate this landmark 80th Anniversary we are pleased to offer a limited edition twin set to mark this landmark event. Price £369.95

  8. Thank-you for posting your views on APC and the concerning issues. I appreciate this can be upsetting. The logistic provider has been working has worked with our customer addressing individual problems with some success, however on this isolated incident there are some issues. Due to the high value of the models APC are required to deliver to the recipient with a signature or at the depot. Failing that, arrangements can be made via a neighbour signature who in some cases can also can be out. As we do not know your customer name can you kindly contact us tomorrow on our telephone so we can discuss the matter further and help resolve the issue further. - 01904 685780. We are keen to pass on your comments to APC and look for improvement for future model deliveries. Regards Simon

  12. We are happy to announce two exciting new additions to the National Collection in Miniature Range. In conjunction with Bachmann we are re-launching our Deltic Model in two exciting liveries the West Coast Mainline Version and the East Coast Mainline Version. Built in 1955, Deltic was made to be a sales tool for rail use of the Napier Deltic power unit, which had been developed for marine use. English Electric in Preston constructed the locomotive with an eye towards the export market, and Deltic’s stylish striping and striking dummy headlight hint to Transatlantic trade which never came. The name comes from the Greek letter delta, and refers to the shape of the diesel engine itself. Tested until 1961, by which time it had accumulated 450,000 miles, it has been part of the Science Museum collection since then. The locomotive is finished in WCML Livery condition with the addition of 2 Headboards, for The Merseyside Express and The Shamrock. The locomotive is also finished in ECML Livery condition with the addition of 2 Headboards, for The Northumbrian and The White Rose. Only 512 of each have been produced and they are bound to be popular models, so don't miss out on your chance to add them to your collection. In Stock Now Priced £165.00 Simon Brannen (Commercial Manager) and Stuart David Brown (Retail Advisor) of Locomotionmodels.com, are pleased to have been presented by Pete Waterman OBE, in conjunction with the Friends of the National Railway Museum, the prestigious Model Railway Express eMagazine award for the best stand provided by an association at the 2017 Warley Model Railway Exhibition.
  13. Good Morning from Locomotionmodels.com, We are happy to inform you that the Duchess of Hamilton model, will be shipped to you tomorrow for delivery to UK customers to arrive Monday via standard courier delivery and international orders will also be dispatched. Regards Simon and Stuart
  14. We are happy to announce an exciting new addition to the National Collection in Miniature Range. In conjunction with Hornby we are producing LMS Princess Coronation Class 4-6-2 No.46229 'Duchess of Hamilton'. The LMS Princess Coronations were the West Coast's equivalent of the LNER A4s, with the streamlined engines painted in striking blue and silver livery to haul the Coronation Scot service from London to Scotland. Over time the streamlined engines in the class lost their casing to match the locos that had been built without the casing. 'Duchess of Hamilton' was constructed with streamlined casing in 1938, and lost the casing during a works overhaul in December 1947. In conjunction with Hornby we have produced No.46229 'Duchess of Hamilton' of the National Collection. The locomotive is finished in BR Lined Maroon with a gloss finish. Only 250 have been produced and it is bound to be a popular model, so don't miss out on your chance to add it to your collection. Expected delivery to our customers will be from WC 13/11/17 Click the link to order http://www.locomotionmodels.com/national-collection-in-miniature/hornbynrm-exclusive-r3594-lms-princess-coronation-class-4-6-2.htm
  15. “The Hornby Q1 has been absent now for many years. Unfortunately some of the tooling options which Hornby had for the Q1 have now been lost or damaged and so we were faced with a minor compromise if we were to commission the NRM Q1 in its current SR livery. One option which it is not now possible to produce because the tooling was lost, is the alternative body without the washout plug holes. The same thing applies to the smokebox door. Only one is currently available. As we have previously said, the smokebox door and reinforcing ring are correct for the period from introduction in 1942 in SR service until fairly late in its BR life. Our works records in Search Engine also show that it acquired the mechanical lubricator in SR ownership, so that is correct too for the SR in service period. But it is of course, in preservation, now in the SR livery again, by which time it had acquired the washout plug holes and the smokebox door with a slightly smaller ring. We felt that producing the NRM model as we have was a reasonable compromise to allow customers to choose between in service or preserved for their own application with just a single minor point of difference, hardly noticeable in its preserved sate This is an important locomotive, currently on display in the NRM, with a real story to tell and we felt it better to produce as we have, than not produce it at all. We hope we have been able to satisfy the vast majority of our customers with the choice we made from those available. We understand that customers have a choice of whether to purchase or not if they do not like a detail compromise, but the 100% accurate 4 mm model is a rare thing indeed, particularly when mass produced and especially at this current price. Further, even minor, tooling options at this stage will significantly increase the price." ​Regards Simon & Stuart
  16. Thank you for your comments regarding the Q1 smoke box. The model was not intended to represent the Q1’s preserved state, as it is in the NRM, but as it ran in service on the SR from late 1942 until nationalisation in 1948. The smokebox door and reinforcing ring is therefore correct for that period. As with many of the National Collection in Miniature models we vary them between preserved and in service condition, as we have done many times with models like Deltic and the Atlantic to mention just two. Available closest detail options often dictate the choice we make, especially when we have not commissioned a model exclusively for ourselves and restricted tooling options exist. Thanks Simon & Stuart
  17. We are expecting delivery January 2018 however this is subject to change as amendments are being made on the model. if you have reserved the model there is no need to do anything else until you are contacted by us to pay for the model approximately 4 weeks prior to release. Many thanks Simon & Stuart

  19. The LMS Black Five is a versatile mixed traffic design, which was seen widely across all regions of Britain's railways. It is a popular class of locomotive with 18 examples preserved in the UK, including No.5000. In conjunction with Hornby we have produced Black Five No.5000 of the National Collection. No.5000 was the first of the production build from Crewe Works, but not the first to enter service. This was No.5020, which Vulcan Foundry managed to construct earlier. The locomotive is finished in LMS pre-war Lined Black with a gloss finish. Only 250 have been produced and it is bound to be a popular model, so don't miss out on your chance to add it to your collection.
