Stunning little model!!

Received my model in July 2020. Nothing, absolutely nothing can prepare you for the size of the model. It's mainly die-cast construction gives it a fair amount of weight. The accompanying conflat provides extra pickups and it certainly helps with smooth running. Not once did it stop on the insulated areas of my turnouts. The model is extremely smooth right out of the box. The livery application is second to none. A must buy model. It's at a very competitive price and worth every penny!

This could so easily have been a higher rating

When this arrived through the door I was excited... and as it turned out, rightly so! These models are small, and one must expect that. The size is, however, prototypical, anything bigger would simply not have been OO gauge. For that reason I had to question the price a little, but when all things are considered it is acceptable. I cannot say its any better than acceptable, but it is ... acceptable. But by far the most annoying problem with this model was that the appliques to the engine hood had dropped off in transit. As it turned out Hornby had used an epoxy resin to hold these in place and my guess is that they had used the wrong one... so it was down to me to affix them... sure, not a big thing, but not what I had expected.

It's worth bearing in mind that fitting a decoder is a pig of a job due to the size of the model but...That said... these are wonderfully detailed little models that do add verisimilitude to any layout, and are an intriguing little model in their own right!

Fairly unique

I could not resist the Queen Anne livery. It is great that unusual models such as this are now available. Running wise, I have only run it so far with the attached wagon but that way it runs perfectly over points, etc. It is too soon / new to see how much it could pull but I may not risk stressing it. After all, it is the kind of model one just has for what it is by itself.
