Well i can remember that this is one of the few locos that my dad got when he was a kid. When i was little he only had 2 trians A little tank and this the A4 Pacific with 2 coaches. He had these 2 loco’s fora while and then he bought. The Great Western Region Bristol Castle, and from there it grew.
I know that he doesnt have the box for this set but i know that its complete. To say its not box its in pretty good good condition and so are the 2 coaches, i know that he hasn’t expanded on the coaches that come with the Silver King, but it does pull the Plum and Custard British Rail coaches well.
We’ve never really had nay problems with the Silver King. Hornby also did A Matt Model of the Silver King which is more rare and harder to come by, and it seems to of eluded my dad for years. In Honesty there isn’t many left for him to get i can maybe only think of 8/.9 trains that he might need before he’s finished
It also was a regional train as it was based up in Gateshead for many years and was then transferred to Ferryhill in 1963, it was withdrawn from service in late 1965 and was scrapped by Motherwell Machinery & Scrap.
Here’s a photo of the Hornby Dublo EDP11 Passenger Train set.
Heres a Picture of it running upo in scotland.
