Excellent Budget Model

Yes it's really a Railroad model but at the price point these models are the bargain of the year! I fitted Hornby TTS sound to my model, added a driver to the cab and attached the supplied etched nameplates. Yes, it would be nice to have lights but how much more would this add to the cost. Sick fed up of people criticising this model. It runs very smoothly, can handle a large rake of coaches / wagons, and when running around a layout looks the part. A great model for youngsters coming Into the hobby too. If you want to pay more for a higher spec model that's absolutely fine but please don't dismiss this model out of hand. I for one are hoping Hornby will in future produce more of these models and should be commended for getting these to the market. ... Read more

Yet again another great engine

I'll say it again. Excellent model with detail been added and a detailed buffer beam. I am sick of people saying this is the ex Lima model. We know. However that always ran well as does this and the pulling power is slightly better. For years we have worried about the increasing price of our hobby then Hornby come out with 9 of these. This is only positive and I look forward to their DB Maritime examples
