Welcome to our round up of recent highlights from the Hornby website
It’s time to cast our minds back to March and pick out all the best bits from the Hornby website!
It was another active period for us here at HQ, which saw our blog flourishing and, of course, some fantastic images and reviews shared with us by all of you. So, let’s get stuck in…
TOP PICK OF THE MONTH
GWR, 6000 'King' Class, 4-6-0, 6023 ‘King Edward II’
The King Class was GWR’s “Super Castle”, designed to accommodate ever-increasing train load services. Emerging from Swindon Works in June 1927, the Class was promoted as “the most powerful passenger locomotives in the country”, and it likely did represent the limit of the 4-6-0 design.
THE LONDON FESTIVAL OF RAILWAY MODELLING 2018
Our team was at the historic Alexandra Palace in March, attending the London Festival of Railway Modelling. Considered our ‘local’ show, we thoroughly enjoyed meeting everyone who could attend, and it was another fantastic year for the hobby.
