Any of those three would suit me just dandy,but George V would be preferred,due to being the only one steaming on mainline specials during the 1970s.
Shame this information's got loose though-spoils it a bit for some people :roll:

Very pleased to hear about the GWR tanks. Will definately be getting a 52xx, as it was the loco we had for my wedding a few months ago! Hope they release it as 5239 'Goliath' :)

Would the GWR 2-8-0T and 2-8-2T be the GWR 4200 and GWR 7200 Classes?

The real GKV is in BR early green, wouldn't be as preserved if it was in GWR.

Finally!! Saw the 72xx at Didcot this year and I immediately wanted one. The 4200 will be a great edition too.

Ben[/quote]

Considering the market that Hornby has now got for the modern era wagons, I doubt they will focus much on steam era wagons now. With the 2011 range bringing us only two new wagons from this period and several upgraded models which also work in the BR era onwards, I would be surprised if they still looked at this era much.

Compared to Bachmann, Hornby has done the least steam era vehicles. Bachmann has also now done the most of the wagons that Hornby do, examples including the GWR Mogo, Toad and 12T Vent Vans and always have a better result that those of Hornby.

This is a weak spot in the Hornby product. Although they do excellent modern era, I feel they fail on the steam era everytime. Apart from their GWR Horse Box, none of the wagons they produce come with a NEM coupling. They all come with the Airfix/Dapol coupling. I just feel they tend to focus more and more now on the Locomotives and Diesels and less of the rolling stock. This area tends to get pushed to the back and not much attention is paid to it. If they spent the time and money upgrading several of their older wagon models, then they would get excellent results from this.

But that said, the research for the B1 from which the O1's boiler, cylinders, valve gear, and cab layout were derived may well have suggested this as the suitable LNER goods engine. That will be another GCR tender tooled up as well, so will it be Bach or Hornby first to the well liked 'Director'?


I'd just like to point out that the GCR tenders behind 01s were not the same as the ones Dirctors pulled. (it was a sell trimming one that only Directors and B7s used)
