I’m sure they could put the money to a better use.

According to the SVR web-site you can't have one now because they're sold out!

good job, would rather money spent elsewhere. In the good old days, these gaudy colours did not exist.

:lol: Hornby
As some suggest, it's hideous, not my era, a rip off, horrible colour!
May I add it is completely disgusting!
It became annoying! :D

The currant era in that colour must be era 11. Notice they are sold out so they must have sold the one they had. :lol:

Proper collectors would simply buy to add to their collection. For keeping boxed only.

Perhaps if it was a slightly deeper shade of purple it would be more appropriate, but that looks like it is sponsored by Ribena!

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 . :) :)

As somebody else said most will go to collectors who won’t even remove it from the box.

There will be dozens on eBay soon.

I have never liked models like this, same goes for Fathers Day or Christmas wagons etc. Still each to their own.if you like it enjoy it.
