Hornby International have launched their new website and it is complete with images of forthcoming releases for French, German, Italian and USA modellers including the ranges of Rivarossi, Jouef, Lima.
Many of the new range of locomotives will now feature NEM couplings and sprung buffers, as well as being pre-fitted with a socket for a DCC decoder.
The new website can be visited at:-
Jouef collectors and French modellers will be especially excited as it is almost 12 years since the brand last offered "proper models" in France and its relaunch is eagerly anticipated. Jouef are to the French what Hornby are to the British.
Could any of you imagine having to go 12 years without your Hornby?
Thats what it feels like for French modellers and only secondhand Jouef examples are currently available on the shelves of French model shops.
