Hornby's Unmodified Bulleid Light Pacific loco Model Variations

As well different cab widths and with or without cylinder casing fairings Hornby has also varied the length of the smoke deflectors and position of the safety valves, and this should be borne in mind when selecting a model for purchase conversion or re-numbering. With due acknowledgment to Roger Stanford and updated by Graham 'Muz' Muspratt, reproduced below is a table of information regarding the Hornby latest models with respect to smoke deflector length, AWS fitted, casing between cylinders and buffer beam removal, safety valve position, cab width, speedometer fitted, tender type and tender emblem.
