The Hornby Dublo model of this loco, Stanier pacific 46232 Duchess of Montrose, was probably the most sought after of the Hornby range when I was a teenager and this shot is redolent of how we envisaged her in service. She was one of the first three of the class to be withdrawn from service as early as December 1962 and is depicted here at Carlisle (Kingmoor) mpd in August 1961. What a magnificent sight!
