Model Catalogue Information

YEAR INFORMATION
2001 First of the streamlined Coronations to be built with a double chimney, the 'City of Birmingham' left the Crewe workshops in July 1939. By the end of its working life and after being rebuilt in 1946, 'City of Birmingham' had travelled over 1.5 million miles and was eventually 'retired' to the Birmingham Museum. Fitted with a five pole motor housed in the locomotive, this loco boasts a high degree of detail as well as numerous pick-ups ensuring smooth control at slow speeds. An alternative front bogie with larger spoke wheels is included to allow the locomotive to be used on layouts which have curves with radii of 19 inches or larger.
