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.

I can see this one going up in value massively!

I seem to recall that Hronby mentioned the reson they did the 08 not long after Bachmann was it was part of the "Diesel History" and so needed to be included in their range.

I hope that Hornby do a 37,47 and HST next year but I doubt it. I think they will do them for the same reason as the 08 they formed the backbone of traction for over 30 years and can't be left out to long.

Back on Topic!

M&S are doing 3for2 on toys at the mo and this includes the Hornby Preimer boxset. works out at £155 per set if you can find 2 more people to buy them off you!!
