Metropolitan 103
Metropolitan Railway H class 4-4-4T no. 103. This very unusual prototype, designed by Charles Jones for working the longer distance passenger trains from Harrow-on-the-Hill to Aylesbury and Verney Junction. The class of eight engines were built by Kerr, Stuart & Co. in 1920. This rare model is of excellent quality, probably built from the Quainton Road Models kit, with a Portescap RG7 motor and gears. Superbly painted in the later style Metropolitan Railway livery by Simon Greenwood and the model carries his signature as provenance on the underside of the running plate. These locos carried extremely large Kerr Stuart builders plates on each side of the smokebox saddle and the model carries replica plates of exceptional quality.
