Yesterday, I got an e-mail from Hornby, who very kindly replied with regards to this year's Mail Order train packs- there are going to be four:
R2597= The Bristolian, containing 7037 "Swindon" and three chocolate and cream Mk. 1 coaches
R2598= The Derby Royal train, containing rebuilt BoB 34088 "213 Sqn." and three new type Pullmans
R2599= The Night Scotsman- A3 60048 "Doncaster" and three blood and custard ex-LNER sleepers.
The above will be L/E of 1500.
Hornby are also going to release R2700- a special set harking back to the days of Triang TT, when Triang sold 300 gold plated MNs to Kays. The new set will consist of a Rebuilt MN in Gold, with a gold-plated Pullman for it to haul. Only 300 sets will ever be made, so be quick- order as soon as they appear in the Autumn retail catalogues.
The "normal" packs will retail at £125, the gold set at £175.
>Admittedly slightly more than £125 which should've probably been the other give away
I just checked our order confirmation for The Northumbrian train pack bought from Hattons just before Christmas - £104, so £125 is pushing the envelope ;-)
