Hornby | Success at the Model of the Year Awards
The results from Model Rail Magazine’s 2019 Model of the Year Awards were recently announced and we at Hornby couldn’t be happier with the outcome.
Hornby are beyond thrilled to be the recipient of not one, but an impressive seven awards, including ‘Manufacturer of the Year’!

Alongside our amazing win for ‘Manufacturer of the Year’, Hornby placed 1st, 2nd and 3rd for the '00' 'Steam Locomotive of the Year’ award. An especially wonderful win, as no other manufacturer has taken three awards within the Steam Locomotive category before.
Our Peckett B2 Class locomotives took 1st place and we’re very proud of these diminutive models, which have proven very popular over the years. Coming in at 2nd and 3rd place were the Hornby Lord Nelson Class and streamlined ‘Princess Coronation’ Class, respectively.

The celebrations did not stop there as we were lucky enough to take a further two awards within the ‘00’ Gauge category.
Our fantastic Ruston & Hornsby 48DS models were awarded 2nd place for the 'Diesel & Electric Locomotive of the Year', while our range of Bulleid 59’ Coaches received 2nd place for the 'Rolling Stock of the Year' award.
