Superb Vintage Bronze Viking Ship – Edward Aagaard Denmark

This excellent bronze Viking ship was hand made by Edward Aagaard for the Copenhagen iron works in Denmark and is marked accordingly on the side of the rudder and also along the hull of the ship, Aagaard was working for this company from the 1950’s to 60’s. It has been very well constructed with individual shields along the side and a copper sail with the image of a bird and comes with a purpose made wooden base. The condition is very good, the only issue I can find is the placing of the shields, they were originally held on a twisted wire, this must have broken and been replaced with a strong fishing wire, it has dulled with age and could do with a good clean, it measures 16 inches long and stands 15.5 high on its base, it is also heavy so please note the shipping will be £8.95.

Detailed Model of the FLYING SCOTSMAN Steam Train.

This is a nicely detailed model, which comes in excellent condition and measures 12 inches long.
The first Special Scotch Express ran in 1862, with simultaneous departures at 10:00 from the GNR's London King's Cross and the NBR's Edinburgh Waverley. The original journey took 10 1⁄2 hours, including a half-hour stop at York for lunch; however, increasing competition and improvements in railway technology saw this time reduced to 8 1⁄2 hours by the time of the Race to the North in 1888.
From 1896, the train was modernised, introducing such features as corridors between carriages, heating, and dining cars. As passengers could now take luncheon on the train, the York stop was reduced to 15 minutes, but the end-to-end journey time remained 8 1⁄2 hours. Like the earlier carriages built for the service, this rolling stock was jointly owned by the three operating companies, and formed part of the pool known as the East Coast Joint Stock.
In 1923, the railways of Britain were grouped into the Big Four. Consequently, all three members of the East Coast Joint Stock became part of the newly formed London & North Eastern Railway (LNER).
It was the LNER which, in 1924, officially renamed the 10:00 Special Scotch Express linking Edinburgh and London in both directions as the Flying Scotsman, its unofficial name since the 1870s. To further publicise the train, a recently built A1 Class locomotive was named after the service, and put on display at the 1924 British Empire Exhibition.

Detailed Model of the MALLARD Steam Train
A detailed model of the famous steam train the Mallard. It comes in excellent condition and measures 12 inches long.

Built in March 1938, Mallard is part of the A4 class of locomotive designed by Sir Nigel Gresley when he was Chief Engineer at the LNER. Its innovative streamlined wedge-shaped design bore no resemblance to the preceeding A3 class (of which Flying Scotsman was an example) and was very much a product of 1930s Britain. At this time speed was seen as the ultimate symbol of modernity. The A4 class, aesthetically an example of art deco styling, cut the journey time from London King’s Cross to Newcastle to just four hours.
Until the morning of 3 July 1938, the recently built Mallard appeared to be just another member of the LNER’s express locomotive. However, Gresley and his team had been working hard to implement changes with a view to not only beat the (then) British steam record of 114 mph held by the LMS, but also the world record held by Germany’s DRG’s Class 5 locomotive—which had achieved 124.5 mph in 1936. Gresley chose experienced Joe Duddington as Mallard’s driver, alongside fireman Thomas Bray. The rest of the crew and technical team were only told the true purpose of the run after the train’s northbound run from Wood Green, North London.
Racing down Stoke Bank, the dynamometer car behind Mallard recorded 120 mph, which saw off the LMS’s record. However, there was a small window before the crew needed to slow down for the Essendine curves, so they accelerated even more. For a quarter of a mile, the dynamometer car confirmed the train was travelling at 126 mph. Now the German record was also beaten. It was claimed the train rocked so violently that dining car crockery smashed, and red-hot, bullet-like cinders from the locomotive broke windows at Little Bytham. The force exerted by the brakes being applied caused Mallard’s big end bearing to run hot, and a slow run to Peterborough was needed to prevent Mallard from being written off.
Driver Duddington and fireman Bray received a hero’s welcome in London. But of course they were soon back on the footplate for another ordinary day at work.
