73 202 ‘Dave Berry’ Gatwick Express

Hornby manufactured 73 202 ‘Dave Berry’ in the revised 2005 Gatwick Express livery of red, white and grey. The original product code for the model is R3045. The model is no longer in production but is available every now and again on the second hand market. This model is an upgrade on the old Lima chassis, featuring a DCC power socket, NEM coupling sockets and a uprated motor.


In this photo, 73 202 is seen coupled next to 73 212 and you can clearly see the difference in glazing between the two models. On the left, 73 212 is fitted with the Extreme Etchings upgrade, on the right, 73 202 has the manufacturer standard fit.
