R4781 GWR MK3 COACH STANDARD OPEN (TSO)

R4781A GWR MK3 COACH STANDARD OPEN (TSO)

September 2015 marked the rebranding of First Great Western as the Great Western Railway and to celebrate this, Hornby have produced a limited edition set featuring Class 43 HST power cars 43187 and 43183, as well as matched Mk3 HST hauled stock. On September 20, 2015, First Great Western changed its name to officially become Great Western Railway, with a corresponding identity redesign being carried out by John Rushworth at Pentagram in London. The brief echoed what the train operating company has referred to as its renaissance of rail a reflection of the £7.5bn investment in the network, as part of the Great Western Mainline initiative. In this new version of the livery scheme the W in GWR is oversized, the zig-zag being a suggestion of the electrification to come, whilst also dividing the G and R more distinctly. The dark green livery references the hue of the Great Western Railway's original green, rather than being meant as a direct copy and brings a touch of class to the West Country routes.
