Every year, Hornby produce special trainpacks for several companies. Littlewoods, Argos, Toys-R-Us, Woolworths, Index, Safeway, Hamleys, Marks & Spencer, and others have all had their exclusive packs. Some also get exclusive sets, and Scalextric sets and cars as well. Hard to say exactly how many exclusives are produced each year, but my best guess would be around 6 different trainpacks plus sets and other items. Depends on your buying power at Hornby, if you are spending a lot then you'll be able to negotiate something special......

Many of these 'exclusive' sets do filter down to normal shops and retailers, either as part cancelled orders, leftover stock, excess production, or other reasons. Try your local Hornby Collector Centre or some of the bigger retailers, you'll be surprised what you might find sometimes..........
