Modelling railways using real steam power.
2 posts • Page 1 of 1
Between 2003-2005 if not mistaken, hornby had a go at making a live steam model in ho/oo gauge
They made a handful of designs including
The flight Scotsman
Flight Scotsman double tender (only 1000 made)
Dwight D Eisenhower
These things are an absolute thing of beauty having 4 of them
Not ran in 5 years but today with some track that has arrived
I fired up the silver link and without a problem ran like a watch
Sadly these things never caught up as people who bought them put them off as to hard to use. It’s a shame as these models had so much potential but sadly not a lot of people noticed it :/
A little dingy , but I’ll get there
i think the main issue was that they run on a separate control system that was incompatible with anything else. (although the technical reasons for this are understandable)
