While I was visiting Milton Keynes MRC, I spotted this on the collectables and vintage test track. A BR Blue Deltic.
Despite the fact that this model has something to do with someone working at Bachmann, it's actually a re-painted Hornby Dublo diecast model.
Collectors might have an attack of the vapours when they see what has happened to the model but since there are loads of them available and many of these are in pretty tatty played with condition, I reckon this is a good use for one. It certainly wears the blue livery well.
