No, the Oxford CEO has been appointed as the Hornby CEO and Simon Kholer is back at Hornby which can only be a good thing.

What is good is that it should help both companies. I hope things go well.

Seems like a good move to me.
Must say I was worried Hornby was going to fold to be honest. That would have been a sad day to be sure.......John

Some of Hornby's models are amongst the best you can buy so I hope this is indeed good news for them.
