Merchant Naval Class 35010 - Hornby R2710

Recommended Posts

Hi All,


I'm trying to get hold of Hornby R2710 Merchant Naval Class 'Blue Star'. I'm southern born and bred so naturally Bulleid Pacifics are one of my favourite locomotives. My Grandad worked all his life for Blue Star line and I would like to honour him with a model of this locomotive. I've discovered too late that Hornby used to sell this locomotive as RTR and I am looking for a second hand example.  

I have considered purchasing the more common 'Clan Line' and renumbering it, but I have not been able to find the name plates. 


Thanks for your time!

You can get labels and plates from Fox Transfers - see here.


However a veritable minefield will be ensure you have the correct tender for the model you choose to renumber....


SEMG website has the details of which tender types were used - http://www.semgonline.com/steam/mn_ten.html


A quick check suggests 35012, in rebuilt form, may have acquired 35010's tender so could be a better choice to renumber.
