Unrebuilt Merchant Navy

The Unrebuilt MN is one of the last 8P express locos still to be produced by any manufacturer. Time to fill that gap!

I see that signatures are now working. Do we have white space too? Let's see.

Hi, Ozexpatriate, I remember when I was very young being on Waterloo Station when 21C1 Channel Packet arrived with the up Atlantic Coast Express. It must have been about 1941 and that loco was gleaming brand new!! How wonderful if we could have a model of that!! Its hooter type whistle sounded so strange and it was such a futuristic looking brute of a loco.

Fully support this. I am building a Golden Arrow kit of one on a Hornby MN chassis with BB/WC valvegear. When I put it up against a normal Hornby BB/WC you can certainly tell the difference. I want a third series one in BR blue. Some 1951 Golden Arrow pullmans would also be nice.

Oh, Yes! Port Line or Clan Line in blue with a set of 1951 Golden Arrow Pullmans. Flags and arrows! What a sight that would be!

... or malachite or brunswick or black or grey....
There's so much scope if only Hornby would take the opportunity here.

I think the white spaces have been working for some time

WTD,

But, sadly, not when I made that post, more than some time ago now. You will note that my signature is also included in the message.

Nevertheless it's all fixed now, as apparently are quoted replies!



But

back on topic, it would indeed be nice to have a as-built or unrebuilt (what an infernal word) Merchant Navy.

Hi Ozex

It is an infernal word and I refuse to use it in this connection, since it is incorrect. The locos are in original condition, to say unrebuilt implies that after rebuilding they were restored to original condition!! Therefore, as far as

I'm concerned Bulleid pacifics are either as built/original or rebuilt, nothing else!!! Now watch out for brown stuff coming from the direction of the fan!!

The light at the end of the tunnel is probably a train coming towards you !
