    Watched the first episode of the Hornby programme and found it very interesting. It followed the design of a die cast metal, limited edition (500,) of the General Steam Navigation (35011), a locomotive of the Merchant Navy class. Also the restoration of that locomotive at Blunsdon in Wiltshire.
