Hornby T9 and Schools Class

A few weeks ago I e-mailed Hornby asking for the release dates of these two locos, I got no answer; so at Warley I asked the Hornby rep and he said early December. Today I received an e-mail from Hornby apologising for their delay in reply and informing me that both models would be available towards the end of December and they could not guarantee before Christmas.

Anyone else have any info on this?

They've resorted to Traction tyres because of haulage issues with such a lightweight loco. The Hornby Mag (Dec) has a review of the T9. While not keen on traction tyres I would prefer this to a nice loco with very limited traction, such as the M7.

Hornby obviously reacting to some criticisms as to haulage power of some of their smaller, and ex- Lima locos
