Royal Ascot Train
An 1899 Class T9 4-4-0 No. 119 works the Royal Ascot Train to places such as WIndsor and Ascot. This engine is painted green, unlike other classes of engine painted black by BR after 1948. The model (Hornby T9 30119) is decorated with the Royal Train headcode of four white discs. The train includes the two Pullman cars to carry the Royal Family; the two leading first class coaches carry other attendants and officials; and the third class brake at the back has the railway people in it. The four-wheeled van behind the engine tender presumably carries the cucumber sandwiches and other refreshments. (Year taken, 2019)
