Click here for the Hornby 2013 Range

Note: This is a Powerpoint presentation saved for the web, so in this collection of information I have no control over individual images and files. As you will notice some images are very large and unfortunately that slows download times. As the CD with this info only arrived on my desk a couple of hours ago, I have not had the time to format it accordingly.

In the next few hours I will try and resize some of the larger images to speed up download times.

The P2 is going on my list... now do I want the 122 'full cream' version, or the Railroad budget 88 one?

From the powerpoint link above (thanks)

I'll have a P2 and a Duke of Gloucester please.

And once again the LMS fan is not well catered for. Other than red and gold coaches, there appears to be hee haw else.

I can't believe, once again, we have the situation of putting some Gresley bogies and silver paint on Stanier coaches and passing them off as the Silver Jubilee. Granted, it is in the Railroad range, but that just drags the whole thing into the realm of being 'just a toy'. They were doing so well too... Hornby, let's not go back to the 'that'll do' days of the 1980s and early '90s...

Some very interesting announcements there, the ones which stood out for me were:


  • BR Blue Tornado
  • RR GWR Halls --> I'm guessing these are based on the Harry Potter mouldings
  • GWR Shunters Truck
  • A4 Locos
  • GWR Stars
  • The e-Link, looks like basically a SPROG-type unit designed for use with the RailMaster software (only 1A PSU though......)

Had more of a look, big moves on the Hornby DCC range. Some good stuff o.k. and I notice that they have bravely put prices up. P2 is 122.99 RRP and Dof G is 119.99, now they are not shabby prices given the development required. Well done Hornby.

With these two launched now, how a about a Turbomotive next year H, oh go on please, please, please biggrin.gif

Of course Hornby have launched the next years range now, mid Dec, to avoid Model Rail Mag from blagging it before Hornby could launch it and blame it on an 'early delivery from an enthusiastic distributior'.

No Scottish EWS 67, no BR blue Princess, no LMS livery tender locos, still waiting for the 2012 range to be finalised, i.e. Duchess of Abercorn.......that was going to be my Crimbo present from SWMBO.

Hi

We should not lose sight of the fact that Hornby is a Toy manufacturer, that also makes scale models, not the other way round.
The whole point of the railroad range is to cater for the toy market, This may lead some into the model market, some will just be happy with toys, why is that wrong?

Pity me not, young Cameron! The Hornby Duke is a preserved one - different tender, and not as much plumbing detail around the firebox.

And I've long expected an RTR P2 - which is why I decided I'd be painting mine black a year ago.

I say congrats to Hornby for sticking their necks out on two fairly limited prototypes. Now if they'd just do a Hush Hush... tongue.gif

I was a bit over-excited when I posted about the 2Bil before midday, but had just seen it on the Hornby site. From the pics on the box it looks good; hope it pulls better than the 466 of a few years back. Glad to see the BR brown/cream Belle. Great news about the P2 and DoG at last.
I know that Hornby have suffered some supply problems this year but still think they're trying to do a good job by us and possibly upping their game.
The 4COR can wait! smile.gif

From what I see on the Hornby 2013 range it's mainly re-liveried on all loco's can't see anything new

But I do see more A4's and I'm happy and mad at the same time as I love collecting them but I hate paying the silly prices oh well anyone elses get what they wanted ? or disappointment ?
