History and collection Edit
Iron Duke scale model Edit
During a recent offical visit, HRH King Dimitri has been offered a scale model of the Iron Duke. It was HRH's wish that this model, in perfect condition, should be displayed in the Railway Museum on April 1, 2008 at the latest. In order to avoid the model being damaged whilst being exhibited, the museum director proposed the item to be displayed behind glass. During a turbulent weekend the necessary has been done in all discretion and today every visitor can admire the scale model of the Iron Duke in its full glory.
Blenkinsop stamp Edit
