Everyone loves a steam train and no model train layout is complete without an engine heartily puffing its way along a branch line or nestling in an engine shed.
Hornby 00 gauge steam locomotives from the UK are exquisitely built to the brand's famous, exacting standards and all the authentic detailing from logos to rivets are meticulously executed to complement your layout.
Here at Hornby, our engineers have added some 21st Century technology to these romantic engines and we offer DCC-fitted and DCC-ready model steam trains in addition to the analogue range. Our DCC trains run under full digital control to enable independent engine movement on the same sections of track and the DCC trains with sound include fabulous, realistic audio to accompany the locomotives’ actions. From the thundering 4-6-2 formation to the modest 0-6-0 tank, there are steam engines to suit any modeller’s layout.
Although built to a slightly larger scale (1:76), Hornby's 00 gauge models can still be run on the same gauge track as H0 models (1:87).
