This new loco from Hornby sets a very high standard:-

Hornby Class 09 "Dick Hardy" Review

It is very difficult to see how Hornby could top this and in terms of the value that Hornby are offering with this new model they must now be the number one manufacturer in Europe.

If any of you have purchased one of the new Class 08/09 locos then you are invited to share your thoughts as the review seems too good to be true!

Happy modelling

It's been a long time since the posted review and very good it was too. I own a number of these wonderful locomotives(Gronks, Jockos) and I am very impressed with their performance and looks. My oldest "Jocko" is approaching its fifth birthday and runs just as well as when first run in. My latest "Jocko" I have had for a week and it is in the process of being run in. These are still brilliant locomotives. Some of Hornbys finest.
Well, I've just taken delivery of another Gronk, this time the sound version. What another brilliant locomotive. I've just spent the evening running it in. I'm very impressed with the sound.
