The most famous locomotive and train in the World features in this superb Hornby train set.  The striking apple green liveried class A1 “Flying Scotsman” helps to recreate those wonderful days of train travel in the 1930s when the two great railway rivals, LNER and the LMS vied for the lucrative passenger traffic between London and Scotland.

This is a great set, this was the first set I got and it is amazing, I have been interested in model railways but never found the time to get stuck in. I finally got this set and it is perfect. Sure the Locomotive is not extremely detailed but it is if you look closely you can see the door of the corridor tender (the one that goes onto the footplate) and the coaches have plenty of detail for me. As this is the only Hornby set available in the US then you have to get it to start you out as it comes with everything you need. I highly recommend this train set to every single person.

The Flying Success

I'm a little new to Hornby so I bought this set as a starter. It is a very good looking set, it comes with all of the starting things you need (locomotive, rolling stock, track, ect...). The transformer is a little flimsy and the track mat can get messed up quickly. The engine is very sturdy and is well detailed same goes for the passenger coaches (but don't be rough with them). Over all its a great set if you have the money.
