Model Information: 1946 - Time For A Change - 50th Anniversary Collection A commemorative limited edition of plates and locomotives commissioned by Hornby Railways in association with the Royal Doulton Company. By the end of the Second World War the four major railway companies were near to bankruptcy with their resources virtually exhausted. However the end of the war was a time for celebration and new beginnings. The austerity years were now behind them and it was time for change. A fresh look and a revitalisation plan were the orders of the day and as a first step in this process each of the railway companies, in their own way, set about the task of reliverying their locomotive stock. Each locomotive and plate set is limited to a 3000 production run. A numbered certificate corresponding to the hand applied number on the reverse of each plate is also included.
Length - 10 3/4 inches - 27.4cm.
