Just had a look at Rails website. Hornby products are not getting any cheaper.

Prices are broadly in line with last year. My pre-orders are in with TMC for the end of the year.
Now if only Hornby would bring back the club discount..........!

Absolutely nothing there of real interest for me ( Early and BR Blue Diesels), but perhaps just as well as I have already spent my cash on what I consider to be higher quality offerings from SLW and Accurascale..... oh how many more days can it possibly be until my shiny new Deltic arrives ????

TBH I only rejoined last year as they mistakenly reinstated it for about 6 hours - reordered my preorders to take advantage. Sneaky, but well worth it.

The staff in the Visitor Centre have been petitioning for its return - if it does, its 20% for purchases at the HVC. Too far for many to travel but fairly convenient for me.
Fingers crossed.

Now considering the RR+ 9f as a good candidate for some heavy weathering - not too expensive if I make a complete Horlicks of it.

Well a curious collection and no mistake!

The re-introduction of Rocket was fairly predictable, allegedly new tooling too, Mmmm I wonder? I guess the original tooling may have been lost in the bonfire of tools many years ago.

The APT was much less predictable. It joins the ranks of 'glorious failures' including the P2, the Crosti and the Hush Hush. The A2/2 and A2/3 much less predictable, so now Hornby have nearly a monopoly on LNER Pacifics, only the NER Raven A2, ad the strange A2/1 clone of the V2 left to do.

The Mark 1 RB will be useful, we now have a Mark 1 catering vehicle. And a proper rake of coaches to accompany the Streamlined LMSR Princess Coronation, I wonder how long it will be before we get the equivalent for the LNER?

The 78000 2-6-0 is probably for me the most exciting although because it rarely worked on the Southern it is not of great interest. I think one brought an excursion on to the Central Division in the early 1960s but that is about it.

The missed the opportunity to complete the re-creation of the much loved Pre-War Hornby No 2 Special 4-4-0s . They already have the LNER D49, LMSR Compound, and 2P, and GWR County, but needed the SR L1 to complete the set. Pity they failed in my opinion.

I don't anticipate spending a lot with Hornby this year.
