Mallard, Sir Nigel Gresley, Britannia, Boadicea and Flying Scotsman in two different liveries. A collection of excellent 4-6-2 Minitrix locos which share a very similar chassis.
The Mallard and Nigel Gresley A4 locos at the top were both marketed by Hornby Minitrix in the early 1980s as N211 and N214 respectively. The two Britannia 7P locos on the second line were also marketed by Hornby Minitrix – N203 with its smaller wheels and lower gearing appearing in the 1970s, the Boadicea, with its larger front bogeys appearing much later and seems to share the same chassis as the A4 and A3 locos.
Missing from this line-up are the two A3 Flying Scotsman models in BR green and in Apple green. Neither were marketed by Hornby, and only ever appearing under the Minitrix brand in green/yellow lined plastic boxes in 1988.
