Indeed, but it's still a useful chassis.

(As an aside 55 my father was evacuated to Tamworth in 1940)

LMS Loco, BR Number

Jeorge, who is trying to work out what the 56xxx actually was.

Wasn't it a Caley shunter?

My Winter 61/62 Combined Volume lists 56029, 31 and 39 as 0-4-0ST 0F Drummond and McIntosh Caledonian 'Pugs' introduced 1885. A photo in the book of 56029 shows that the Hornby model bears a reasonable resemblance to this class of loco.

I checked my summer '56 combined volume (I collect them how sad is that) 56025 is shown as being in the above class

Here here. and a usefull painting / weathering excercise for anyone unsure of their abilities.

Very true, a fair few years ago I detailed and weathered one for use on an industrial layout - it looked pretty good.

This railroad range looks like the bargin of the century. On the site listed above the picture of 4472 shows that the model is the last tender driven generation of A3, previously listed as "super detail" if the RRP is £50 for this and Hornby don't scimp on the decoration as it says they won't on the website, it makes the prices we paid for these locos a few years ago (and still can pay, Hattons still list Humorist on their website for £71) a little OTT. I can't wait till they come on stream, it just leaves me with a bit of a dilemma as to what to do with my old Flying Scotsman. Having just taken delivery of the NRM edition 4472 I was going to send my old (early 90's) F'n S' to the paint shop but now I don't think it's worth it and may have get a couple of railroad editions to rename.
