To the kind attention of HORNBY

Yes, I know we have discussed this topic that; why aren't there any British Loco's in HO scale? and that lots of things has been said about it but I want to bring this subject up again and if any Hornby people are reading MRF ( I am sure they are ) would hopefully take notice of it.

The HO market is huge, Brits have a very fine loco range and quite famous ones as well that I personally would like to see in my collection and belive out there in HO land there would be a sizable amount of people thinking like me too.

Examples: A Flying scotsman, a 8F would be perfect starters. ( why am I always bringing up the 8F

I don't know, a poll done on this issue among HO people might give them an insight of to start off with which loco, they have all the resources for it; their web site, Hornby international, magazines.... Just ask: What British loco would you like to see in HO scale, or even narrow down your choice to 3 / 4 loco's that you seem more appropriate to produce.

I personally think it is worth thinking about.

Maybe, just maybe, if British outline rolling stock began to appear regularly in mainland europe in that German Swiss region then there would potentially be a market for it.

The success of any model comes down to how well it would sell.

My wish list has a number of things that unless I scratchbuild them, they are unlikely to be purchased RTR by the big manufacturers. In todays environment it is about howoften the same mold can be used for the same locomotive with different paint jobs.

Look at how many SBB 460's have been mae by everyone.
