QUOTE (dwilson9 @ 5 Oct 2006, 19:29) <{POST_SNAPBACK}>...Hornby's programme in recent years has involved nothing more scientific than going through 30-40 years old catalogues and thinking "we'll do that one"! M7, Brit, A3, King Arthur, class 31, 08 ... well Hornby go back again and settle on the B12!
Must admit I'm intrigued by both Hornby and Bachmann's strategies. Whereas Bachmann seem to concentrate on the widespread late Company/post war types (BR Standards and such), Hornby, (when they're not doing Pacifics) do seem more adventurous, but only with classes that (presumably) have worked for them previously. But a B12, to current standards and with boiler variations, would be worth seeing
