L/E No. 15

Class 60 No. 60081 Isambard Kingdom Brunel (GWR green)

EVERYONE LOVES BRUNEL, Britain’s most famous engineer. The introduction of Hornby’s Class 60 – which still sets the benchmark today – provided the ideal route to celebrating the bicentennial year of his birth in 2006. We selected to represent EWS-operated No. 60081, which had been turned out in lined green and named after the GWR’s chief engineer in 2000. The model was as instant success, combining the key ingredients of ‘spot-on’ timing, accurate base model, heritage livery and celebrity status.
