Hornby Dublo 3-Rail EDL12 D12 4-6-2 BR Princess Coronation Class Loco No.46232 Duchess of Montrose

The good old faithful Duchess of Montrose, the one that always seemed to take a back seat in my memory of Hornby. Mainly because it was always looking so cheap next to the City Of Liverpool. One think that always intrigued me was the fact that the coal in the tender was in smaller chunks compared to those of the A4’s.

The Picture below shows the Duchess of Montrose in a matt finish but ours was gloss, so unless there was a matt version I’m not to sure. I do prefer the matt finish though.

Rearly did the Duchess ever give any problems, if i remember rightly it never liked going over crossing sections of track.

I can remember this been brought home one Saturday afternoon, so in my mind it probably came from york.

  1. I had this model on a full layout. Have now got the Two Rail version, weathered, in a display case with 46236 “CITY OF BRADFORD”.

  2. Hi Rory
    I am writing a short account about my growing up in Sheldon, Birmingham in the 1950’s. I am hoping to use a few images that I have found on “Google”.

    I would like to use an image of a Horny Dublo train set which is I believe credited to you, but I do not want to infringe on any copyright.

    Therefore I am asking for your permission to use the image.

    Thanking you

    Kind regards

    Keith Rowbottom
