1978 Britannia, the first of a class of 55 locomotives built by British Railways in the 1950s, is now running on the Severn Valley Railway, far from the East Anglian fens where it spent the majority of its life. The attractive lines and operating efficiency of the class, used throughout the country, are captured by the Hornby model which features finer scale fully flanged driving wheels, full cab detail and is powered by a tender mounted Ringfield Silver Seal motor.
