Hornby Type 101 Tank Locomotive - Marked LNER 460 - Type 0-4-0 - 0 Gauge.
This was my first Hornby clockwork loco. These locos can be aged fairly acurately, the green wheels
denote post war and the trademark "Hornby/Manf'd by Meccano Ltd" indicates it was manufactured
between 1947 & 1948. This one is in green LNER livery but they were also produced in green SR and
black GW and LMS liveries. These tank locomotives carried coal in a bunker behind the footplate and
therefore had a closed cab. Short video of it in action here.
