Hornby R3973 Dublo: BR, A4 Class, 4-6-2, 60007 ‘Sir Nigel Gresley’ – Era 4
Being the 100th locomotive to be produced to the designs of LNER Chief Mechanical Engineer Sir Nigel Gresley, it was decided to name locomotive 4498 after him. ‘Sir Nigel Gresley’ was completed at the end of 1937 and paired with a corridor tender previously used by A1 and A3 Pacifics. After the Second World War, now inherited by BR and re-numbered to 60007, ‘Sir Nigel Gresley’ achieved the post-war steam speed record of 112mph, this done while hauling a full rake of coaches.
For 2022, the Hornby Dublo locomotive range has been extended to include a BR, A4 Class, 4-6-2, 60007 ‘Sir Nigel Gresley’ in the striking BR Green livery. This new model along with other new additions to the range, allows customers to build or indeed start their Hornby Dublo collection. Produced in diecast and there will be just 500 models produced.
