Hornby East Coast Express Train Set
Item number NFFNX
Hornby East Coast Express Train SetMany of the B17 locomotive class were named after football clubs and invariably held a special place in the hearts of local communities associated with a football club of the same name. On many occasions local football supporters were conveyed to the `away¿ match by their namesake engine, usually cleaned and polished to pristine condition for the day¿s outing. This set is representative of just such a typical East Coast Express train and would have been a familiar sight on the Eastern Region of British Railways during the mid to late 1950s.
