This year's RE Limited Edition is, as I suspected, a class 60...

60081 in GW Green, no less!

Going to cost £95 mind you but it'll be worth every penny.

And for those who have not read Rail Express yet its a limited of 1,200 and comes with the usual etched plates and certificate etc. Those who ordered 31130 should get a priority order form now (Got mine today at home).

Please Note that the model is not the New Hornby Class 60 bhut the Lima one so £95 is alot of money for somthing thats no where near up to the present standard of detail and running quality.

The Lima one is just so they can illustrate what the model will look like. It will be a Hornby one for when they decide to make it.

Can't wait
and will hopefully make up on what has been another very disappointing year on the livery front from Hornby, with 1 tg Mainline 60

There is still a possibility of a Hornby Collectors Club ltd edition yet which may well be another class 60 unless they are not going to bother this year.

Sooner go for the collectors club one any day despite the livery of IKB. Care to hazard a guess as to which one will be chosen for the collectors club one if any?

For limited edition wise i'd suspect either of the Corus liveried ones would be the best choices as they are one-offs. Failing that a nice weathered two tone grey one would be very welcome (Don't care on what logo it carries).

Which would we prefer- British Steel Blue, or Corus silver?

The Corus silver looks nice on a 60 compared to the British steel blue, but i would be happy with either if they were ever done.

I would prefer the British Steel Blue, but on saying that a Corus silver would be nice

Hornby will no doubt release plenty of sectorisation triple grey versions and others (Transrail, Corus etc) over the next few years.

The class 60 model will be in their range for quite a few years yet, so they won't realease everything in one go, will they?

What's the betting for 2007's models?
I would go for:
EWS on a different number
A triple grey sector model
A Transrail or Corus or possibly both?

Hornby's schedule of varied liveries for the latest releases has been very disappointing over the past couple years
the 50's either been a dirty NSE, Large Logo, un-refurbed BR Blue, what about a refurbed BR Blue, a Dutch and a Riviera or a heritage 50 in its present day guise, the 31's the worlds they're oyster with this one Sectorised, EWS , Intercity ect, they did carry more liveries other than BR blue Hornby
, the 60 we could have had a Sectorised, Transrail, Steel what do we get this year 1 Mainline TG
, have you seen Heljan releases schedule for the 33 late 2006/early 2007 DRS, West Coast, Sectorised, Fragonset etc, Hornby could do well to take a leaf out of Heljans book in this department
