Hornby R1171 Flight of the Mallard Train Set
A celebratory set commemorating the 75th anniversary of ‘Mallard’ achieving the world speed record for steam locomotives. It was in July 1938 that ‘Mallard’ was recorded travelling at 126mph at South Bank on the East Coast Mainline, snatching the record from the German railway by a mere 1.5 mph – a record that still stands to this very day.
This striking set includes a representation of ‘Mallard’ as seen in the days just before the record attempt resplendent in the Express locomotive livery of Garter Blue. Accompanying the locomotive are three LNER teak effect coaches with additional coaches available from the RailRoad range. The set also includes a large oval of track with siding and buffer stop.
