Only 92220 was named by BR as Evening Star, supposedly the last steam loco ever built by BR, it was also the only green one. Black Prince was named by David Shepherd who bought it to preserve it. Southern fans will tell you that a MN class was actually built after Evening Star. I think it was Elder Dempster.
I was after an Evening Start and ended up with this one.
But it was amazing that this one found its way to me because
it (the model itself not the actual loco) is exactly as old as me
It is a bit pity that BR didn't give 92166 a proper name.
I am going to name it by myself ;-) I am going to order a pair of etched
nameplates with my own name for the nice loco since both of us share
a same year of birth
If you like the one produced by Hornby and it is an old one, you will drool over the new bachmann one. It really is in a different class and is quite the most powerful loco I have and I have about 60 mostly RTR.
