The locomotive in the picture is King George V, a Hornby tender-drive model of the late 90s.

There is one on Ebay at the moment: http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/Hornby-British-Rail-KING-GEORGE-V-STEAM-LOCO-5D_W0QQitemZ390186465442QQcmdZViewItemQQptZUK_Trains_Railway_Models?hash=item5ad8ecf8a2

Alternatively, there are other BR Blue steam locos available...

Hornby B12

Bachmann Peppercorn A1

(Or a brand-new A1 for £100)

Bachmann Gresley A4

Hornby Duchess


Is that any use?

Cheers,
Gavin

A generic name for the Hornby model of a 2721, taking into account all the inaccuracies of the model.

Cheers mate :wink:

For those of you who like the sounds of model railways, these two (very brief) vids might appeal - it's worth watching them in HD quality:

For those of you interested, this pic gives quite a good indication of how lucky I am in terms of having space to play with...

...and you can't overestimate just how nice it is to have a comfy chair! Trains whirling round, a good book, a nice cup of tea, sitting in the warm sunshine...bliss.

That BR Spam-Can Battle of Britain in the corner kinda ruins it unless you are getting at the point Bullied was a LNER designer before he went to the southern? BTW which Spam-can Battle of Britain is it?
