Those are all examples of "good" models. There has to be a model which you like for no particular reason, a tinplate Hornby maybe?

Well if we're getting into sentimentalism, it's got to be the Tri-ang 'Polly' 0-4-0T !
Seriously though, if it's down memory lane, then it's got to be the old HD BR Standard 2-6-4MT.

OK, in terms of Hornby tinplate it has to be the 'Zulu' and No 0 2710 0-4-0s & tender and the M1 2526 0-4-0 & tender. These are nothing but pure toy trains and early examples too, but I love their lack of pretension and simple honesty.
I've also got a rare mid-20s Midland Railway liveried M No 3 0-4-0 for which I've got a particular soft spot.

In that case, it would have to be a Triang Hornby "Winston Churchill" I used to love that one, pride of my fleet as a lad!! Then came the dreaded rocknrollasaurus................

The 59 class would be a close runner-up if there was a model of it in HO scale. I don't model Australian railways, but I am going to have at least a pair of these machines. I don't have any models of EMD NA locomotives, but the Australian and British stuff is "different".
