The T9s and Schools should be in shops now, but I am aware (as Black 5 Man mentioned) that Hornby has had difficulties with production in China during 2008. However, this situation should now be resolved following the purchase of Sanda Kan (the factory which Hornby uses in China) by Kader Holdings (Bachmann's parent company).

The full production T9 and Schools models both arrived in our office well before Christmas and our samples are distributed at the same time as the shops receive theirs. A full review of the Schools is in the February issue by the way, which is on sale on Friday.

With regard to the Hornby BR Standard Four, this model is now due to be released early in 2009 because, as Simon Kohler has said, Hornby wanted to get all the details right before committing to production - the way it should be!

Hope this helps.
