Hornby Dublo "Silver King" 1953

The "Silver King" was Hornby Dublo´s first A4 in British Railways green. The gloss variant came out in 1953 and the matt variant probably late 1954.

A lovely locomotive and a very good runner, although tested on my layout, I have only run light with no coaches up until now.

I intend to run this locomotive with my Hornby Dublo Pullman coaches.
