Hornby J50 Decorated Samples Break Cover

Hornby’s Engine Shed News thread is now showing decorated samples of all three of the forthcoming J50 models. Due for December release they really do look superb models. I had assumed that the LNER version would be of a late-LNER livery but it’s shown here fully lined. I’d also assumed the BR J50/3 version would display the early BR crest, also not the case. So it will be out with the T-Cut and then a new set of transfers. As far as I’m aware the J50/4 type with the built-up bunker did not venture to Bradford or the Queensbury Lines (I’ve certainly never seen a photograph) but I’m tempted to get one anyway for completeness.
