Since the acquisition of the exLima tools there has been a steady demand for the return of the 6 wheel milk tankers, a demand which Hornby are now pleased to have addressed. Soon to be available will be three 6 wheeled milk tankers using some of the tooling which was obtained when Hornby purchased certain assets of Lima. However, Hornby have completely retooled the chassis using a GWR design pattern and incorporating NEM pockets fitted with Hornby couplings.
The three milk tankers (Express Dairy, United Dairies and Aplin & Barrett Ltd.) will be available in September at a suggested retail price of approximately £6.75.
"These new wagons are a real addition to the Hornby range and will prove to be a very popular part of the Hornby wagon range." said Simon Kohler, "and will no doubt continue to be as more liveries are released over time."
