It is the long-term intention to review every model in the locomotive fleet; with the following exceptions:  Bachmann 850 Lord Nelson and Hornby 6100 Royal Scot have all been modified beyond recognition; whilst Hornby LBSCR E2, Mainline 56xx Kitmaster L&Y pug and Corgi Diecast model of the Rocket are all without motors.  Bachmann J72 and 1 Thomas the tank engine are all out of action pending DCC-fitting, whilst Triang Hornby S-class is a non-runner.
