In the latest edition of the Engine Shed, Hornby fans have been treated to a wealth of new EPs & livery samples.
Highlights included the first livery samples of the highly anticipated Gresley 4-6-4 Class W1 'Hush-Hush' in as-built condition.
The samples include;
R3840 - LNER Class W1 'Hush Hush', 4-6-4, 10000 (as built)
R3841 - LNER Class W1 'Hush Hush', 4-6-4, 10000 'British Enterprise' (planned name plates, but never carried)
R3842 - LNER (Promotional) Class W1 'Hush Hush', 4-6-4, 10000 (a planned livery, but never carried by the class)
Expected delivery date for the production models is late 2020 / early 2021, though as always this is subject to change, as always we look forward to bring you a full review of these models when released!
As well as livery samples, Hornby also revealed a whole host of EPs, including the latest samples of both the British Rail Class 91 and the five-car Advanced Passenger Train (APT).
Both models look to be coming along in leaps and bounds, though as with all samples Hornby have expressed that there are still a few changes to be made before progressing onto the livery stage. Expected delivery date for the APT is ate 2020 / early 2021, with the Class 91 following in Spring 2021.
Livery samples of the forthcoming BR MK1RB's and the first running samples of the LMS 'Coronation Scot' coaches, also feature in the lates update. Once again both models look to be advancing well, with delivery of the MK1RB expected soon.
