Compared to the old one this is a breath of fresh air! Well done them.

Impressed with Hornby's new website even though it's not fully operational.

Still not working yet, which is hopefully a sign they are getting all Ts crossed. After such great changes, hope all is well. Ominous that all forums are down.

I think Hornby are getting there. It only appears to be the forum that it still in limbo. I don't know how far the forum goes back (years), but they are obviously trying to transfer the complete "old" forum onto the new site.

Its hardly "getting there"; the product pages are a complete joke - for example choose ERA 3 (Grouping) and apparently the only loco they make for the 1923-1948 period is the Railroad B17 !

If you filter era 3 by loco you get the one. If you look at all era 3 you get loads. Strange.

The site addresses are seriously messed up. Based on the text of the link below you would not expect it to take you to an LMS, Class 4P Compound.
