SBR Standard Class 4 2-6-4T


10 posts

It would be amazing if Hornby would release a BR Standard Class 4 2-6-4T in BR Express Blue livery. 

I accept this would technically be a Neverwazz... however surely the suburban workhorse deserves to be seen in BR's prettiest livery at least once? (albeit if only in model form) Wink



Also request for a class 310/312 in toothpaste... however since so many have already suggested this - I'm simply adding a vote!

Toothpaste is 1:1 perfection... but for models rule #1 applies!

With projected sales figure of * * ONE I can't see this appearing in the near future!!!

** My opinion - not a real poll



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

Shades of 1970s Wrenn here! 


Some dreadful livery applications to woo the collectors. 


I have never liked the green livery on 80135 on the Moors, these locos were meant to be mixed trafffic black.

Green trains are best!

You could get away with a BR  green Fowler 2-6-4t and it would be aurthantic unlike the locos Wrenn churned out way back when. 

if it Doesn't come in CRIMSON, it ain't a proper engine

My request is not entirely without precedent... Hornby previously released a B12 in this livery - R1089 “The Anglian”. Wink


On a related note (since Hornby will probably agree with PP!) - does anyone know of a company that offers a professional re-livery service? (should I wish to commit an act of heresy on one of the existing black ones!) Laughing
