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.

It seems that the about OO Vs HO will never be solved and there will never be a large industry backed British HO.
However when it's the accuracy of the scale/guage that's the biggest bugbear then the way forward would surely be similar to the way that DCC is being supported buy the major players.
All new designed locomotives and rolling stock to be offered in RTR OO and a guage closer to that which it should be EM/S4/P4. I would think that which ever is the corsest of these would be the one that they would go for as they are dealing with a wide range of people with very differing abilities in terms of track laying.

Just an idea
