Where to buy Hornby?

#1

Post by Anthony Wong » Fri Jun 21, 2019 3:14 pm

Good afternoon everyone.

I am starting to collect Hornby and OO Gauge railway models. I was wondering if anyone can suggest the best shop?
I came across Railway Model Store on Google. Has anyone used it?

Hattons, Rails of Sheffield, Cheltenham Models, Gaugemaster will do for a start.

My advice is don’t just buy Hornby. Other makes such as Bachmann and Heljan to name but two are excellent.

I was thinking of Track-Shack but couldn’t remember the name. Excellent company and next day delivery.

Thats a good find scratchbuilt - thanks for putting that up on here.

Also vouch for Track Shack, very nice company to deal with and will advise by phone if not too busy. R-
Not sure if I have plenty of time on my hands - or I’ve simply forgotten to do something really important.

And Ive used these people before. Decent prices and if you collect in person you can go for a ride on their railway :D

Hi Anthony and welcome to the forum.
As you may well have gathered there are plenty of Hornby outlets and all the ones people have mentioned will have been used and proven to be good. It will just be a case of shopping around for the best price and don't forget the delivery costs.

No one has asked here the OP lives, which could affect where he buys from.
