Some interesting additions.
The Huntley and Palmer Peckett freight limited edition pack looks good.
However, my eyes were drawn to the 2 new examples of the newly tooled Duchess class.
As exciting as it is to see them I was a bit perplexed as to why Hornby have chosen 2 examples of the class that have been produced in recent years and not ones from 20 years (or more) in the past;
With ‘Duchess of Gloucester‘ I remember this exact example and livery (BR Express Blue) from the 2004/05 range. As for ‘City of Edinburgh‘ this came out as recently as 2011/12, again in BR Express Blue (as I purchased this one).
As a suggestion it would’ve been nice to see an example of one not seen for a while, say ‘Duchess of Norfolk‘, ‘Duchess of Rutland’, ‘City of Lichfield’, ‘City of Stoke on Trent’ or even the 2nd Ivatt modified example ‘City of Salford’.
I don’t wish to come across unappreciative as I always look forward to new product announcements but maybe some wider research into different class members would be nice
