The Hornby FGW Western Region 'The Corps of Royal Electrical and Mechanical Engineers' Class 43 HST is part of the the Hornby Diesel/Electric Lomotive range and accurately recreates the real life locomotive. This model features extensive detailing.

At the beginning of April 2006, FirstGroup, having secured the newly combined FGW franchise, unveiled a proposed new livery with a graduated blue to purple body colour and horizontal dynamic lines. Originally applied to both coaching stock and power cars, upon refurbishment the power cars received a modified livery of solid blue/purple, minus the dynamic lines. Unit 43070 was delivered to traffic on November 19, 1977 and became The Corps of Royal Electrical and Mechanical Engineers on October 16, 2007. Here it is paired with Unit 43036 which is a year older, being delivered to traffic on November 20, 1976.
