Welcome to our monthly round up of highlights from the Hornby website
While many of you will have packed away your Christmas decorations until next year, we here at Hornby wanted to enjoy the festive season one last time by looking back at December on the Hornby website.
We hope you enjoyed the month as much as we did, especially as we ran some special Christmas features, some of which make our highlights for December. Enjoy!
TOP PICK OF THE MONTH
Stanier Period III Coaches
Our Top Pick(s) of the month are the Stanier Period III Coaches. Soon after William Stanier took up his appointment as the Chief Mechanical Engineer at the LMS, the first of completely flush sided coaches emerged. With several slight changes from earlier stock, these coaches include the LMS Corridor coaches in Crimson and the BR Ex-LMS Suburban Non-Corridor coaches in Crimson Lake.
FORUM CHRISTMAS COMPETITION WINNER!
Over the Christmas period we asked you to tell us, in 75 words or less, how Hornby and railway modelling gets you and your family into the Christmas spirit.
We were simply blown away by the response, and after carefully reading each entry on our Forum, we decided that Nottingham Modeller’s post was the best amongst all the entries!
CHRISTMAS IMAGE COMPETITION
We were definitely in the giving mood over December as we started another competition on the website, hunting for the best festive image. We always love seeing your images, but it’s truly special over Christmas.
The good news is that the Customer Image competition is still open so be sure to submit your images before the end of January to be considered! In the meantime, feast your eyes on last year’s winner, Ewhout Rohling.
