The Hornby No.1 Tank Loco underwent a number of changes over the years.

Originally born as the Zulu Tank Loco, it got its new name when the Zulu range was folded into the Hornby range. In the mid-1920s the loco was being sold with "0-4-0" lettered on its sides, although "proper" LOCO numbers reappeared before the end of the decade.

The "Great Western" version of the No.1 Tank was physically different in that it had the distinctive "pointy" GW-style steam dome. The other versions went from having a large gold-coloured dome, in the mid-1920s, to a painted dome in the late 1920s, to a lower-profile dome (and generally sleeker lines) in 1931.

The redesigned 1930s version of the No.1 tank loco was superficially quite close to the lines of the enhanced No.1 Special Tank Loco, the easiest way to tell the two apart being that the "Special" version had a set of steps by the driver's cab, and the "standard" No1 Tank loco didn't.
