Well, 0001hrs.

Happy new year, and, as it's now 01-01-06, shall I spoil it for you all?

Oh, all right then, I won't!

Not too sure what the DCC means. Clearly locos are DCC ready but are they going to have pre fitted chips?

There are 3 brand new digital sets and the new Hornby Digital system does look pretty simple to use.

And the Skaledale range gets ever better and larger with a complete canal system and a complete road and sign system!

Happy modelling
Gary

Pity hornby haven't seen fit to model any super detail SR coaches to go with all those loco's. Still I see they have taken on board a lot of well documented requests about what to model. I notice the live steam releases are very thin on the ground was this just an expensive fad?

Go over to the news section on here for the latest releases as promised chaps.

Live steam could just be a year of consolidation, letting the engineers have a breather while they think how to fit the mechanism into smaller models.

Regards,

Shouldn't the "hornby" HST power car be in a set with a cotswold railway liveried one?

Its now 00:25 and the Hornby website is down!

Seems like the only place to get the Hornby news for the moment is at Model Rail Forum!


Happy modelling

They've gone toall the trouble of doing the pendolino with a dummy pantograph i see. Doesn't say if it can be raised or not.

Some prices would've been useful, though possibly too much for the old ticker on new years eve on top of the artillery barrage outside.

There are certainly a lot of surprises including recent newish models where there are apparently a very limited number of new additions to the range.

Happy modelling

Presumably the new releases are going to run alongside last years models of the A3 and 4. I notice they seem to release 4 different versions at once on new steam models and 3 on diesel.

Hornby website still not showing any news at 01:15am.

There will probably be some "specials" for sets and train packs available through the big chain stores so its best to keep eyes peeled.

There may well be further news at the London Toy Fair later this month.

I do understand that the 2006 Hornby catalogue is almost twice the size of the 2005 edition!

Happy modelling
