Model Catalogue Information

YEAR INFORMATION
2001 All of Gresley's A1/A3's were originally name after racehorses and 'Robert The Devil' was no exception. Built at the Doncaster Works and outshopped in 1923, this locomotive was rebuilt as an A3 in 1942 but retained its GN tender which remained with the locomotive until withdrawal in mid 1963. Powered by a ringfield motor housed in the tender, the Hornby model boasts superior detailing including sprung buffers and pickups on all the driving wheels ensuring smooth control at slow speeds.
