Mountain Goat is an unknown quantity at this point

Is strange that WTD. It could be that the regular items like Percy and Thomas have flooded the market when the other items like Toby, which wasn't quite sold in such high numbers sell at much higher prices.

Hornby's "BIG" announcement is on Tuesday (8th May) - the Hornby Forum is in such a state of excitement you wouldn't believe it. It's probably a DCC version of Nellie.

Havenít visited the forum for months Barry. I should get an email about the announcement. A DCC Nellie, do you really think so. Excited.

A shame as many have said. I liked Thomas and friends but the range went mad a few years ago, they was doing as many characters as they could like spencer and even flying Scotsman as a character

Sorry if it upsets anyone but I am glad to see the back of Thomas the Tank Engine. It had long run for its money and I dont think it has lost the interest it had years ago.

It was reported in the June issue of Hornby magazine. It says production has ceased and will be removed from the range at the end of 2018. I have three Thomas buildings - the station, the engine shed and the butchers. I have not got any locos or rolling stock. My model shop said Thomas items were always in very short supply despite there being many customers who wanted to collect them.

Given that you've got to the end of the year to get your Thomas and Friends themed layout together, what locos and rolling stock are you going to get?
