Having been neglected during the wartime years while based at Grantham Shed, numbered as 22 and having been paired with a Corridor Tender, Mallard's prestige was restored with a move back to Kings Cross on 11 April, 1948, the last A4 to regain the Garter Blue Livery. British Railways experimented with their own versions of Blue and on 16 September, 1949, Mallard, now numbered 60022, emerged from Doncaster Works in the new BR Blue for Steam Locomotives.

Blue A4 mallard
just got my loco finished for action,here is my opinion.loco looks great superb in blue,i have fitted TTS and has usual after running in it runs and sounds great like most of Hornbys pacifics i have.Now a few not so goods once again i have had to cut the tender weight up to fit the TTS its about time Hornby rectified it i have spoken a few times about this to technical dept but nothing ever happens,the tender fitted is correct ex A3 corridor 5323 which it ran with 5-3-48 to12-5-53 and heres where a mistake has been made the loco was in the loco exchanges of 1948 the back of the tender ends were cut down to fit the water cranes at euston and they stayed that way a point Hornby have missed (picture yeadons register A4s page 77) years ago this would not have been got wrong,most times hornby print the number on the backplate not this time,why! lastly for the price i think we could have had some etched speed plates for the sides,like Hornby did for no 9 and 27.Despite this its good 8 stars....
