Thinking about the Dapol Class 73 N gauge loco reminded me that Hornby now have a Class 73 OO gauge loco in their range as a result of the Lima aquisition. And the Lima Class 73 is one of Lima's better models so what chance it being offered at some point in the Hornby range with a new 5 pole motor and super detailing?


And which other Lima locos should Hornby reintroduce as part of their UK range?


Assuming of course that they give a makeover to any Limo loco reintroduced.

Happy modelling

Given that Germany is the largest model railway market in continental Europe there would be some logic in developing a live steam model for the German market. Lima is possibly a stronger brand than Hornby in Germany so it could well be a Lima Live Steam model that is developed. Current HO gauge German Live Steam models cost €3000 (£2000) and are not mass produced and generally built to order. I am not sure if there is a Lima model in the range that would be a suitable live steam candidate for Europe (Germany?)

Happy modelling
