'P L Models Of North Wales'

For Sale is a complete set of six Hornby '00' The Great Gathering A4 Steam Locomotives

Mallard, Dominion of Canada, Union of South Africa, Bittern, Dwight D. Eisenhower, Sir Nigel Gresley

On 3rd July history was made in York as the world’s fastest steam locomotive, Mallard, was united with its five surviving sister engines in the National Railway Museum’s Great Hall, a spectacular international family reunion sponsored by Hornby Hobbies Ltd.

This unique collection will feature a limited edition of only 500 units each of the six locomotives in their respective liveries as seen at the National Railway Museum. These locomotives, each with etched nameplates have now been released and those who collect all six will be entitled to claim a specially commissioned glass display cabinet so that the models can be seen as a complete collection. The distribution of the collection will be strictly controlled and allocated with only complete sets of the 6 locomotives being released to retailers and distributors alike, therefore it is strongly recommended that a firm order is placed with your retailer to ensure that you reserve each of the 6 locomotives as they are released. For this collection to be totally unique each of the six locomotives as they are released will all receive the same numbered certificate (the number we have is 429) and to ensure that this occurs the specific certificates will be sent to the relevant retailers individually.

For those who collect all six locomotives there is a further bonus. Enclosed with each locomotive will be a token so that once all of the six locomotives in the Collection have been obtained these tokens can be sent to Hornby, together with a payment of £10 (to cover postage and packing) so that a British-made specially commissioned 'The Great Gathering' display cabinet can be dispatched allowing for all six locomotives that make up the collection to be displayed as an everlasting memory of 'The Great Gathering' - the last remaining LNER Gresley designed Class A4 locomotives on show and all in one place. This offer applies to UK Mainland only. For those in the rest of the world, please contact your nearest Hornby distributor for details. 

Please note our offer also includes free P&P Royal Mail Special Delivery!
