YEAR INFORMATION
2000 In their heyday, the Westerns and some other WR diesels appeared in a unique maroon livery demonstrating the individuality of the B.R. Western Region. By the late 1960s standardisation of livery overtook them, yet the blue version still enhances the inherent beauty and power of the 52s. The Hornby model is fitted with a ringfield motor, die-cast metal cab interior and separate handrails which, like the wheels, have been chemically blackened.
