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
