Hornby’s Rebuilt Merchant Navy Tenders

 

The Merchant Navy class were built in three series, the 1st series (BR numbered 35001 to 35010) with 5000 gallon tenders (which were subsequently rebuilt to 5250 gallon), the 2nd series (35011 to 35020) had 5100 gallon tenders and the 3rd series (35021 to 35030) had 6000 gallon tenders. However, during (and after) rebuilding many tenders were swapped between locomotives.

In producing models of the rebuilt Merchant Navy class Hornby only built the 5100 gallon (late crest) and 6000 gallon tender (both early and late crest) types which narrowed their models to specific dates. However, it is possible to swap these tenders to alter the date of the locomotive and in the case of number 35029 Ellerman Lines match it with the correct 5100 gallon tender and not the 6000 gallon tender modelled.

The first table below sets out the possible variations using Hornby’s locomotives and tenders:
