For those of you who don't visit the HO section here at Model Rail Forum Hornby International have released the new Rivarossi HO DB loco with full specification and with metal boiler and tender priced up at around £175 in Germany and around £125 plus tax in the USA.

QUOTE RIVAROSSI 2-10-0 HR2017 DB BR58 tender steam locomotive in black & red
(HO scale) Tender steam locomotive class BR58 of the German Deutsche Bundesbahn DB railways in black and red livery. Epoch III, metal chassis, bi-directional lights, Digital ready with NEM652 interface, metal tender and boiler, length: 280mm.

Now if ever Hornby get around to doing something similar in OO for the UK then £140-£175 may be the sort of price range the model would be offered at all things being equal.

What chance a Hornby metal bodied 9F to out Bachmann Bachmann!


Given that Hornby now have a new 2-10-0 chassis this seems entirely logical!

Happy modelling
Gary

I would much prefer expansion of the range of RTR. A different freight type, the ROD would be my top pick; not least because smaller boilered heavy freight types need all the weight they can get to pull a full size train in model form.

And ran on the GWR as well as the GC/LNER/BR and not forgetting their wartime travels.

The Bachmann 9F is already quite a capable puller, so I'm with 34C hoping for something a bit different. How about a small tank engine, eastern region of course

Kind regards

As I have based my model just east of Leeds, an area where the sheer complexity of its railway history still confuses me, any LMS (or constituent companies) locomotive which worked in this area is fine by me.
