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?

A traction tyre is a small rubber band that fits around the driving wheel in a small recess.

its one of those marmite issues. people either dont mind them or hate them. they do provide extra traction but they are ugly and people are still haunted by the very poor tyres that were found on Lima and Hornby models in the 90's.

modern traction tyres such as those fitted to roco engines are hardly noticible and do add a massive ammount of pulling power.

its really up to the purchaser weather to tolerate them or not.
