I would go for the Hornby version - it's detail is finer and it doesn't look as 'chunky' as the Oxford version.

Being one of the first batch, mine had the decoder socket cross-wiring issue where one of the function outputs was connected to the wheel pickups. This did indeed fry a decoder.
I reconnected the socket and it has been fine ever since.
I would suggest that this problem has probably been fixed on current versions.
The loco was always OK on DC.
