R3828 British Railways, 60163 Tornado 'The Aberdon

R3828 British Railways, 60163 Tornado 'The Aberdonian' Train Pack.

A fantastic model of Tornado with three BR MK1 coaches as used on excursions by the A1 Locomotive trust.

On 1 January 1927 the London & North Eastern Railway decided to officially adopt the name 'Aberdonian' for its sleeping car express between King's Cross and Aberdeen. It was timed to depart King's Cross at 7:40pm with a journey time to Aberdeen of a little over 11 hours. By 1939 the train was departing King's Cross at 7:30pm. 

In 1971, British Rail withdrew the name 'Aberdonian' from the early evening departure from King's Cross, then timed at 7:55pm. 

'The Aberdonian' name was revived in 2019 by The A1 Steam Locomotive Trust for its series of main line steam excursions from Edinburgh to Aberdeen hauled by its 2008 completed Peppercorn class A1 No. 60163 Tornado. 

This train pack contains:
  • Tornado in its distinctive Apple Green livery
  • Three maroon liveried BR mark 1 carriages. 

The train pack is remarkably good value
