Our next Project 68846 0-6-0 formerly of LNER and GNR, doing the majority of its work at Kings Cross.
This J52 was the first locomotive to be privately purchased from British Railways.
The lined out livery which is unusual for tank locomotives was applied during its last few years in service as it was used at Kings Cross for carriage shunting and was often seen alongside the more prestigious locomotives.
Due to the nature of 68846's work, it was kept a very clean engine, our goal is to make this Hornby model look as she would have 60 years ago at Kings Cross.
68846 is currently residing at NRM Shildon.
