Isn't the Mainline/Replica BG a model of the ex-LMS type, also on a 57' underframe like the BR mk1 BG?

Yup it is, subsequently taken over or at some time also released by DAPOL. Bachmanns BG is a Mk1 BG, correct length.

but why are hornby still making it
Well because it sells to those who
A/ Don't know its over length and aren't bothered
B/ Know its overlength and aren't bothered
D/ Don't know its overlength
C/ Are collectors

If it returns Hornby a profit, let them carry on selling it, the returns on that and similar items helps the company survive, pay dividends, rent, etc etc, and helps pay for new models.
