New for 2013
Hornby train sets have a history going back nearly 100 years and have during that time combined great excitement with fantastic trains. The diverse range of Hornby train sets offer a variety of contents and formats designed to provide as much appeal as possible.
All Hornby train sets are packed with a MidiMat which incorporates a pictorial bird’s eye view of a fully sceniced layout, which provides the new set owner with the opportunity of seeing how by the simple addition of Hornby Track and Building packs a superb layout can be created. Each Hornby analogue set is complete with a mains transformer and controller which means that once the box is opened and the track assembled it is only a short while before the excitement begins.
This year’s selection of new sets includes 'The Flight of the Mallard' which includes a model of the World Speed record holder for steam locomotives, 'Mallard' plus three LNER coaches. Power for this set is provided by the standard Hornby analogue control while for those who prefer digital or DCC control there are two new sets featuring the dynamic computer interface, the 'eLink'. This amazing unit connects between a 'RailMaster' installed PC or laptop and the layout. Once all connected the full power of 'RailMaster' control can be unleashed!
