Welcome to our monthly round up of highlights from the Hornby website

 2018 is in full swing here at Hornby and January proved to be another exceptionally busy month at HQ. The biggest news was definitely the 2018 Range Launch, which was revealed in all its glory at the beginning of the month.

However, there’s plenty more for you to take a look at as we round up all the best bits from the last four weeks!

TOP PICK OF THE MONTH


Class 08 'DB Schenker' '08623' with TTS Sound

The Class 08 0-6-0 diesel electric shunter is probably one of the most recognised locomotives in the country. With almost 1,000 produced between 1952 and 1962, the Class 08 fleet is likely one of the largest, with over 300 remaining in traffic.

The TTS decoder fitted to the engine offers over 20 different sounds, including the distinctive ‘Cold Start’ which is included for the first time on a Hornby TTS chip.

OUR CHRISTMAS PHOTO COMPETITION WINNER!


Last month we told you all about the Christmas Customer Image competition, probably one of our favourite features of the year! Christmas 2017 was the toughest to date, but we recently picked our winner - who scooped £100 to spend on the Hornby website.

Many congratulations to Morgan Reynolds and his image which we think offers an amazingly emotive winter scene on his layout!
