LNER really isn't my area of interest, but my son has spent too much time on
the NRM website and has become fascinated with the Mallard story.......
So knowing nothing about current and recent models of the A4s, what are the
pros and cons of the easily available models? I presume the current Hornby
model is loco driven, whereas the older one is tender drive. What other
differences in terms of appearance and general accuracy/quality? I see the
Bachmann model has split frames in Mainline style. Experience of Mainline
and older Bachmann mechanisms does not encourage me to consider this
one.What are the individual qualities of the Bachmann A4 model, should I
reconsider this one?
