Hornby R1180 Postal Express

A fantastic Travelling Post Office Set with a working trackside post bag collection feature.

Before the development of the British motorway system millions of letters were shipped from town to town by railway. Many of these mail trains travelled at night and included a TPO (Travelling Post Office) coach in which bags of letters and small parcels were collected, sorted and then dropped off in bags at the relevant stations along the route.

This set not only includes a deceptively powerful GWR 0-4-0 locomotive but also a TPO and support Clerestory brake coach. The “net” projects from the coach to scoop the mailbag from the trackside pick-up hook.

The bag is then automatically ejected into the trackside receiving bin at the place of delivery. This set also includes a MidiMat, as well as an oval of track with siding which can be extended using the Track Packs available separately.

Contents

    - 0-4-0 Ex GWR Locomotive

    - Operating Mail Coach

    - Clerestory Coach

    - Track: 3rd Radius Starter Oval, Track Pack A (with point and buffer)

    - 1 amp Wall Plug Transformer

Hornby R1202 The Mallard Pullman

-UK Independent Retail Exclusive-

On July 3, 1938, Sir Nigel Gresley's 'Mallard' sped down Stoke Bank, south of Grantham on the East Coast Main Line, in a blur of Garter Blue. At milepost 90¼, between Little Bytham and Essendine, the locomotive recorded its highest speed of 126mph. Breaking the 1936 world speed record of 124.5mph for a steam locomotive, previously set by a German engine, the record still stands today. This set is representative of a typical East Coast Pullman train and would have been a familiar sight between London and the North.

The track circuit in this set can be extended to fully complete the included

MidiMat layout by using additional track and accessory packs, creating an exciting and fully functioning model railway (see page 114). As an alternative to the included Pullman Coaches, LNER Teak Coaches from the RailRoad range, available separately, could be substituted.
