Class Information: Although Class A3 locomotives were introduced in 1928; the reality is that they were all re-builds of earlier A1 locomotives dating back to 1922.

Year Information: The “Talisman” was the successor to “The Coronation” which was cancelled due to the outbreak of the Second World War. Inaugurated on the 17 September 1956, “The Talisman” operated between London Kings Cross and Edinburgh Waverley on a twice daily service which unsurprisingly became known as the morning and afternoon Talismans. Although this particular Hornby Great British Train pack is based on the early 1960’s service “The Talisman” continued well into the diesel era and can still be seen as a heritage rail tours train. Each “Talisman” Great British Train pack includes a numbered limited edition certificate of authentication and with the additional of the extra coaches a truly impressive train can be compiled.
