Model Catalogue Information

2006 The Dean Single 4-2-2 “Lord of the Isles” was first introduced into the Hornby range, (then Tri-ang) 45 years ago in 1961 as part of a train set as well as being available on its own. Over the following years the locomotive appeared sporadically up until 1981. In that year the “Lord of the Isles” made a welcome and final return as part of a collectable train pack which remained available for two years, however, it was never included in the Hornby catalogue pages. Now some 25 years later a special 25th Anniversary “Lord of the Isles” Limited Edition Train pack is once more available for the model collector and as can be seen this time featured in the catalogue. In 25 years manufacturing techniques and materials have changed but where possible Hornby have tried to capture the very essence of this Limited Edition model train as it was not only in 1981 but as far back as 1961, the year of the locomotive’s first introduction. Contained in a special presentation pack, each train is complete with a limited edition certificate denoting that it is one of 2,500. Limited Edition Train Pack contains:
GWR Dean Single 4-2-2 “Lord of the Isles”
2 GWR clerestory composite coaches
1 GWR clerestory brake coach
