Hornby's model of the distinctive Lord Nelson covers three variations of the class, originally produced by the Southern Railway and later used by British Railways. It's perfect for Southern region modellers seeking an elegant large steam locomotive to haul express workings on their layout. Each model features:
R3603TTS - 30850 "Lord Nelson" in BR green with late crest - TTS sound fitted - £139.50 BARGAIN (RRP: £194.99)
R3634 - 851 "Sir Francis Drake" in Southern Railway olive green - £124 BARGAIN (RRP: £169.99)
R3635 - 30863 "Lord Rodney" in BR green with early emblem - £124 BARGAIN (RRP: £169.99)
We got a closer look at Hornby’s next variation of the Lord Nelson, which is part of their new 2020 range.

The Lord Nelson class locomotives were intended for use on continental boat trains between London and Dover but were also later used for express passenger workings in the South West. 16 were built at SR's Eastleigh Works and they represented the most powerful 4-6-0 design of the Southern Railway. Only one example survived into preservation.(Information provided by Wikipedia)
