Hornby R1214 East Cost Express Set

Many of the B17 locomotive class were named after football clubs and invariably held a special place in the hearts of local communities associated with a football club of the same name. On many occasions local football supporters were conveyed to the ‘away’ match by their namesake engine, usually cleaned and polished to pristine condition for the day’s outing. This set is representative of just such a typical East Coast Express train and would have been a familiar sight on the Eastern Region of British Railways during the mid to late 1950s.

Hornby R1176 Eurostar e300 Set

A Eurostar cutting through the Kent countryside heading for the Continent at 300kph is a wonderful sight to behold yet for those on board the feeling of such speed is minimal. This year sees the familiar grey livery give way to the fresh and striking colours of the new Eurostar e300 trains with their eye-catching blue / grey colour scheme and newly refurbished interiors. The Hornby model replicates this new livery both in the four car train set and the separately available additional “Divisible Coaches”. The stunning Hornby train set features a Class 373 Power driving unit, dummy driving unit and two passenger saloons. The model includes flush glazing, detailed roof panels and simulated pantographs. The track circuit measuring 1575mm x 1143mm, sits easily on the 1800 x 1200mm (6’ x 4’) TrakMat and includes track pack A, and a controller.

Hornby R1183 Master of the Glens Set

An exceptionally powerful locomotive was required to haul the LNER express passenger trains along the final part of the difficult and demanding East Coast Main Line from London to Aberdeen. Such a locomotive was the awesome LNER Class P2, ‘Cock O’ the North’.

The model LNER ‘Cock O’ the North’ locomotive and simulated teak coaches included in this set help to capture those exciting days of train travel in the 1930s when trains such as the one depicted in this set would cut through the Scottish countryside and would be without question the ‘Master of the Glens’.

This 00 Gauge train set includes The DCC ready LNER Class P2 2-8-2 locomotive. Also included are three LNER passsenger cars: 2 composites & 1 brake car, plus an oval of track with siding, measuring 1575mm x 1143mm, controller and scenic Trakmat, measuring 1600mm x 1280mm.
