A green electric 4-4-2 SR Hornby Series No.3 Locomotive, Southern 850, "Lord Nelson", with front lightbulb.

Although the No.3 locos were launched in 1927 (with the "Riviera" loco launched in 1926), the Southern 850 Lord Nelson version was a latecomer, and didn't appear until 1928 - as a result it sometimes gets missed off lists of the "Number Threes".
