i have actually been holding my breath long enough now to achive the correct shade of nanking blue!

i dont care if the model isnt perfect. at least i will have something i can kitbash!

We will definatly get DCC from hornby but will we get the holy grail of the £5 decoder from them? will we get sound?

Another snippet from MREmag this morning in reagrds to the Tri-ang model being re-released.

QUOTE (MREmag 23-12-2005)The same model is also going to appear in the Thomas range as a character from one of the books. - Ed.

Hopefully that will narrow down the identity of the model, but i'm guessing that means its not the Blue Pullman.

QUOTE (MREmag For Sunday 01-01-2006)There will be a complete list of Hornby's planned new models for 2006 - all 304 of them! They include 5 newly tooled locos and plenty of Lima models added to the Hornby British range.

Looks like i might need to start to save some money i think ... Or dip into my student loan ...

Some Hornby clues from the Model Rail Express website today;

"Don't miss the special update on Sunday 1st January when there will be a complete list of Hornby's planned new models for 2006 - all 304 of them! They include 5 newly tooled locos and plenty of Lima models added to the Hornby British range."

Can't wait...........

This has appeared on the Hornby website.

For those eager to find out what new releases will be coming in 2006 from Hornby, don't forget to check back here just after midnight on January 1 2006 for all the latest news.

Next year's range has been a closely guarded secret and many modellers will be waiting by their PCs as the clock strikes '12am', and they will certainly not be dissapointed!

The suspense is killing me...........

Hello everyone this is my first post, although I have been reading this site for many months now. I have it on good authority that Hornby will be doing the following Lima Models sometime this year.

Class101 (Blue and Green)
Class73 (Blue, Pullman and Fragonset)
Class121 (Blue, Green and NSE)
Class 59

No new D&E, but a few unusual Liveries.

It would be good of hornby to start with 4 of the rarer models which still command good prices second hand on ebay. Not sure about the 73 in pullman colours though one off loco with 2 names and already been done by lima not to mention i've already got one. However it may mean some spares finally working their way onto the market as my other 73 needs horns, buffers and those plates on the ends for working with southern demu's etc.

Righty, my predictions are:
1 fully new tooling= Britannia }Together, these give the five MREmag locos
4= "New" (Ex Lima) 101, 121, 73, 59
Lord of the Isles makes a re-appearance- BRM Calendar shows a clerestory- to accompany Lord of the Isles?

I wouldn't mind a retooled britannia given the fact that the latest super detailed tender drive ones still have the mounting on the loco chassis for the old motor. I don't know if they will retool it as the old one just went dcc ready this year.

No Blue Pullman I'm afraid.Lots of other goodies though.

I suppose , although they don't say it that the ex-Lima models will at least have upgraded mechanisms, that should be good.
