There is a report at MRE mag this morning on the Glasgow Show:-

QUOTE As for news of new items, Hornby were showing a completed Lord Nelson 'Sir Gawain' (weathered) and it looked fantastic. The detail is amazing, the top edge of the tender is really thin (no thick edge detracting from the appearance) and, as the cab is relatively open and the tender is low, the backhead shows up better than in other recent models such as the Britannia or Q1.

Are Hornby about to release an unanounced new model?


The Lord Nelson class has always proved a hit among modellers and a new version to current super detail standards would be welcome.

Happy modelling

Is an N15 the same as a King Arthur ? not being a Southern man myself. Are the Lord Nelsons - King Arthurs - N15 very similar ?

N15 is the same as King Arthur. Lord Nelsons have 4 cylinders and a unique sound. It would make for a great sound loco if this is possible as the chuff is entirely different to any other steam loco.

QUOTE Sir Gawain is of course a King Arthur Class Loco

Sadly true.


A Hornby Lord Nelson would be nice though.

It has been said by another forum member that if you say a model will appear it will appear.

Lets all work on this basis!


Happy modelling

Agreed the N15 was indeed the basis for the King Arthur. The N15's were originally built by the LSWR but were later nominally rebuilt by the SR. Then you also had the Scotch Arthurs, but that's another story.

Maybe we should bestow a 'muppetry award' [-a la Steve Wright in the afternoon] for anyone making such a basic error in locomotive recognition.......
