Description

Hornby: Late BR 4–6–0 ‘The Ranger’ ‘46165’ Royal Scot Class

By 1926, faced with a stock book of outdated and unsuitable mainline locomotive traction, the London Midland Scottish Railway had an urgent need for “provision of an improved and more powerful type of passenger engine for the purpose of avoiding double heading and duplication of certain heavy express passenger main line services”.

In October 1926, following a degree of procrastination by the management of the LMS, the loan of Great Western Castle class No.5000 Launceston Castle spurred the LMS into action and in December, an order for fifty ‘improved’ 4–6–0 tender engines from North British was placed; the result being the iconic ‘Royal Scot’ class of locomotive.
