Just received mine, absolute stunner, well done Hornby. One question I couldn't find an answer to in the data sheet - what are the spare tender wheels for ?

Sir William A Stanier lives!

Received direct from Hornby after a considerable wait - but it was worth it. Run in on rollers on analogue - perfect. Fitted DCC decoder (easy) - perfect and near silent. Now - lets fit the drawbar between the tender and the loco in its closer position to lessen the gap between the two. Oh dear, the drawbar now fouls the 4 pin tender plug. But Hornby were helpful and a different design of drawbar was posted to me without delay. Now to see how it runs on my layout. Some issues here. The fixed rear bogie axle has insufficient vertical movement to accommodate changes in track gradient - it causes the driving wheels to lift from the track! Some dismantling and judicious use of a needle file cured that! Then the front bogey was prone to derail over some medium radius points. Some careful adjustment of the bogey mounting spring cured that! So now I have a very desirable locomotive, which runs silently and smoothly over all my track. Impressive! Now to add sound, firebox flicker, crew...... Read more

One of Hornby's best steamers! Must buy

I never really like the Princess Coronation Class of steam locomotives. However shortly after Hornby announced this last year at Warley and once I learned about the Ivatt version of it, it was an instant pre-order. I received my model on 5th of November and instantly the amount of detail hits you. The model is an absolute stunning replica of the real thing. Smooth as silk, heavy in weight and heavy on detail. It's a must have, if you can get one..buy one! You won't regret it.

It's a Stunner

This Locomotive has to be one of the best yet to be produced by Hornby. It has raised the detail to the highest standards , for such a difficult model to perfect. From Buffer to Buffer it is outstanding, the modelling of the rear pony truck has to be seen to be believed. yes it runs like a well oiled machine. It has to fairly said Hornby have produced a very clear winner.
