Re: hornby r30231 purple West Country class.

I don't know what everyone is seeing because I can only see a beautiful colour of a locomotive for the Queens Jubilee,ive seen it in the flesh, minus its name plate and it is nice and for the hornby model,well 2500 people must think its worth having . :) :)
