Hornby 8P Merchant Navy 4-6-2 35028 ‘Clan Line’ – Centenary Year Limited Edition In BR Green Late Crest Livery.
Limited edition of 1000
Withdrawal of the class commenced in February 1964, their traditional workings being taken over by Warship class diesel-hydraulic locomotives and the final seven engines were withdrawn during 1967, with the end of steam on the Southern region. Eleven of the class were eventually saved from the cutter’s torch and now survive in various states of preservation across the country.
A landmark in Hornby’s development programme, the rebuilt Merchant Navy models and in particular, ‘Clan Line’ were milestones for Hornby in the 2000s and consequently ’Clan Line’ has been included as part of Hornby’s Centenary Collection, celebrating the 2000 decade by utilising box artwork inspired by the Hornby Railways packaging style of that period. However, the model has also been produced where the exterior metal parts have been plated in 18ct gold.
With each locomotive there is a wooden plinth fitted with an 18ct gold track piece, plus a numbered certificate authenticating that the model is just one of 1000 models produced.
