One appears to be "Railroad" and one "Railroad Plus". I believe that the only difference is a slightly more detailed paint job. From Hattons "These Railroad Plus models feature enhanced livery application over other Railroad releases."

The time has come for Hornby to sort out their "decoration levels" and drop Railroad. Perhaps calling anything in an ex-Margate body "Classic" they are hardly pocket money prices these days.

The Class 20 is a Lima model rather than a Margate designed model.
