Classic UK Minitrix Models  -  The Pacifics
Mallard, Scotsman, etc

Mallard, Sir Nigel Gresley, Britannia, Boadicea and Flying Scotsman in two different liveries.  A collection of excellent 4-6-2 Minitrix locos which share a very similar chassis.

The Mallard and Nigel Gresley A4 locos at the top were both marketed by Hornby Minitrix in the early 1980s  as N211 and N214 respectively.  The two Britannia 7P locos on the second line were also marketed by Hornby Minitrix - N203 with its smaller wheels and lower gearing appearing in 1970 - before Hornby started to market the Minitrix range.  A major design change some time after 1980 saw the Britannia adopt the same chassis, gearing and wheel set as the Mallard and Gresley models, and adopted the much darker Brunswick Green livery.  Boadicea in 1985 was a renumbered version of the later Britannia.

Neither of the Flying Scotmans were marketed by Hornby, even though they instigated the production of these two models with N numbers set aside for 3 versions.  However, they only ever appeared under the German Minitrix brand in green/yellow lined plastic boxes in 1988.
