| Description

Probably the most iconic Pacific Express design of locomotive in Great Britain, the LNER Gresley A4, with its streamlined casing, was a classic symbol of the attitude towards speed and design in the 1930s.

The 1930s saw increased competition to the railways from road and air travel and the LNER Board knew that they had to make travel between the major cities faster, more comfortable and more reliable. High speed diesel services were starting to make an impact abroad, in May 1933, the German State Railways diesel-electric Fliegende Hamburger entered service, running for extended periods at 85mph and by 1934, in the USA, Burlington Zephyr had reached 112.5mph during a longer 1,015 mile journey.


Hornby is a household name and is famous as the UK's brand leader in the model railway hobby with its high quality 00 gauge (1:76) models and accessories.

Hornby's best A4 locomotive

This is my first ever A4 Pacific locomotive I have bought and I am very glad that I did. 60026 Miles Beeover is a beautiful locomotive. Absolutely wonderful design created by Hornby, the detail is superb from sprung buffers, nem couplings and cab detail Hornby have really outdone themselves. They have captured the feel and elegance of the A4 in this one model definitely worth the price. In conclusion, as my first A4 locomotive I have owned I highly recommend it to anyone who is interested in this model, you will not be disappointed.
