Model Catalogue Information

YEAR INFORMATION
1993 Following conversion to A3 specification in 1947 further improvements continued in BR ownership and by 1961 the Flying Scotsman had acquired a double chimney and smoke deflectors as represented in this third Hornby version. Tender powered by Type 5 ringfield motor. Suitable coaches are R.400 and R.448.
1994 Towards the end of its days in BR ownership, Flying Scotsman acquired a double chimney and smoke deflectors. Rather surprisingly, under private ownership, it was restored to this condition and livery in 1993. Tender powered by Type 5 ringfield motor. Suitable coaches are R.400 and R.448.
1995 This supurb model includes separately fitted smoke deflectors, double chimney and banjo dome which are all hallmarks of this most famous of locomotives later days in BR ownership. Tender powered by Type 5 ringfield motor. The locomotive is suitable for use with R.400 and R.448.
1996 Always a popular locomotive when seen in the apple green of the LNER, however, even in the more austere BR green livery of the later days of steam and with the double chimney and German style smoke deflectors added it still conveys a certain regal presence. Suitable for coaches R.400 and R.448.
1997 Commonly seen in the apple green of the L.N.E.R., the Flying Scotsman is presented here in the more austere green of B.R.s early sixties livery. Chimney and other details are correct for the locomotive at this particular point in its history.
