The locomotive in real life was named ‘County of East Sussex’ for a period of time but this particular example of the model doesn’t carry the nameplates. The model came with a detailing pack to add extra detail at the front and rear of the locomotive.

The release of this model just highlights that the Lima version of the Gatwick Express was years ahead of its time, the area that this Dapol model excels at is the detail in the chassis.
