photoblog image Duchess of Hamilton

Duchess of Hamilton

 

The Duchess of Hamilton as a static exhibit in the NRM yard at Railfest 2012. One day it would be grand to see this Coronation Class locomotive in it's pre-war streamlined state in fulll steam on the main line. We can only dream.

I've only seen this without its streamlining Les,It looks wonderful,like apiece of Art Deco, as you say, to see it in steam, would be great.
Les Auld: We can but hope Frank, thanks for the comment.

Phew! A Land Blimp!

Gorgeous image, Les.
Les Auld: Thanks Ray, she did look just grand in the evening light.
I have seen a similar locomotive called the Mallard, some time back. Lovely, gleaming livery.
Les Auld: Mallard was a competitor of the Duchess Ayush, thanks for the comment.
