Hornby R30231 OO Gauge
The Queen's Platinum Jubilee 2022
West Country No. 70 Elizabeth ll

In a move that sparked worldwide excitement in 2022, the Severn Valley Railway commissioned the temporary repainting and renaming of SR West Country Class 34027 ‘Taw Valley’. A head turning purple livery was chosen to mark the 70th anniversary of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II’s reign and her Platinum Jubilee year.

Renamed by public vote, ‘Elizabeth II’ commemorates the longest reign in the history of a British Monarch, and as further recognition of this historic milestone, the locomotive has been renumbered as ‘70’.

In partnership with the Severn Valley Railway, Hornby is proud to produce this representation of the locomotive, in a limited edition of 2,500. The SVR and Hornby are donating a proportion of the profits from the sale of ‘Elizabeth II’ to The Patron’s Fund which supports the charitable organisations across the UK and the Commonwealth for which Her Majesty acts as a Patron.

Commemorating the longest reign in the history of a British Monarch, this Platinum Jubilee steam locomotive is based on the 2022 Severn Valley Railway temporary repainting and renaming of SR West Country Class 34027 'Taw Valley'. Boasting a striking royal purple livery, the locomotive marked Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II's 70th anniversary on the throne.
