YEAR INFORMATION
1995 This particular A3, in common with most in its class was originally built as as A1. Although re-built in 1942 to A3 standard, this locomotive kept its GN tender until being withdrawn in 1964. The model depicts the locomotive in the BR green livery of the early 1950s. Tender powered by a Type 5 ringfield motor, Dick Turpin is an ideal locomotive to haul R.400 and R.488 coaches.
1996 Along with the majority of its class, this locomotive began life on the LNER as an A1 but was re-built as an A3 in 1942. The Hornby model depicts Dick Turpin in the BR livery of the early 1950s and is powered by a ringfield motor. Suitable coaches R.450 R.440 and R.445.
1997 Like most of its class, this locomotive started life as an A1 with the L.N.E.R., but was rebuilt as an A3 in 1942. It wears the B.R. livery of the early fifties and is powered by a ringfield motor.
