A world without Hornby would be a really, really crap place. Of course they've got to raise prices given the current economy. It would be naive to think they can survive as a business without doing so. But compared to the continental manufacturers, Hornby is a bargain.

If the high end locomotives are unaffordable then the choices are pretty clear: buy second hand or buy Hornby railroad and detail them or buy smaller - tanks instead of tenders. This is the golden age of RTR models. It needs to be enjoyed while we can.

My New Year resolution is to buy more Hornby at the expense of other manufacturers. As long as I have a job anyway.

Of course all bets would be off if a City of Truro appeared. Regardless of manufacturer, an example of every pre-nationalization variant would be mine!!
