Welcome to The Engine Shed

Your behind the scenes look into the Hornby Development Office, coming to you regularly with exclusive updates on upcoming models.

The new R7229 Analogue Controller, R&H 48DS and the Peckett B2

March's blog takes a look at the development projects behind three new 2019 items. Covering the R7229 Analogue Controller, Ruston & Hornsby 48DS and Peckett B2, there's inside information on all three models ahead of their release later in the year. There's also time to check in with the 'Large Prairie' and recent London Festival of Railway Modelling at Alexandra Palace.
