Heritage Railway magazine are offering a prize of a Hornby Flying Scotsman Train Set in an exclusive competition on the Heritage Railway website. The A1 4-6-2 is presented in LNER livery with four teak coaches to represent the period of non-stop running between London and Edinburugh over the summer seasons of the 1930s. The set contains everything needed to just set up and run the Pacific, including transformer, controller and track.

You will have to be quick as the competition closes 3pm on the 31st August 2005. Usual competition rules apply.

To enter the competition you will need to visit the Heritage Railway website and answer a simple question. As a service to Model Rail Forum members the link below will take you directly to the Heritage Railways competition page:-

The new fully detailed A1/A3 is due out any time now however "Flying Scotsman" is not among the initial models released. Is anybody taking bets on a super detailed "Flying Scotsman" not appearing in 2006?


The truth Doug is that you are probably the only British outline railway modeller in Europe (or even the world?) not to own an example of "Flying Scotsman" (even the "£1.99" version
) so all you have to do is simply enter the competition as nobody else will!


It is after all Hornby's best selling model ever having been around since 1968!

I do suspect however that there are modellers who simply refuse to buy the current "Flying Scotsman" model as it is not up to the standard that they want of their model locomotives and it is/was tender drive. The brand new super detailed example should be up with the best and has loco drive.

Happy modelling

Who would have thought that Dennis the Menace and Hornby Live Steam would have something in common!

This months edition of "Best of British" magazine which features an article on classic British comics is giving its readers the chance to win a Hornby Live Steam Flying Scotsman or Mallard:-



The link to the website of this interesting magazine is below:-
