Hornby R3814 O Gauge 2710 LNWR No.1 Centenary Year Limited Edition 1920 (Large, O-Gauge, Tinplate)

This item is (1) in stock (2) brand new and in it's box (3) non negotiable on price.  The model is one of a limited run of only 100 pieces and a very safe long term investment piece.

With the Great War over and German toy trains not being imported due to the bitterness towards the vanquished, Frank Hornby saw an opportunity to expand his manufacturing business into the production of toy trains and consequently in 1920 he launched Hornby Trains.

Frank Hornby’s first British made Hornby ‘0’ gauge locomotives were produced in tinplate and assembled using nuts and bolts at the Meccano Ltd. factory situated in Binns Road, Liverpool. The first locomotive design of this construction was a simple generic style 0-4-0 locomotive using a clockwork mechanism and connected to a simple 4 wheel tender.

The No.1 0-4-0 Hornby ‘0’ Gauge locomotive design featured cylinders and connecting rods, plus brass handrail knobs. Also, all variants were fitted with cylinders with the bodies having an enamelled finish.

Inspired by the railway companies of the day, the first four tinplate ‘0’ gauge Hornby Trains locomotives produced respectively in 1920 were liveried in Midland Railway (MR) Maroon, London North Western Railway (LNWR) Black, Caledonian Railway (CR) Blue and Great Northern (GN) Green. These locomotives continued to be produced until 1923.

The four liveried Hornby Train replicas, using where possible the original Frank Hornby design have been produced as close to the original model specifications as possible but in place of a clockwork mechanism a 12vDC electric motor has been fitted allowing for three rail operation.

A Collector's Piece

Only 100 of these '0' Gauge highly collectable but functioning limited edition models have been exclusively produced in four liveries, reminiscent of the original tinplate locomotive produced by Frank Hornby in 1920, with each model authenticated by an individually signed and numbered certificate.
 
Please note: These locomotives are '0' Gauge.
