  4. and fingers crossed they will get there. we need Hornby! we really do. can't let a household name Hornby disappear like that. my first model train set was a class 25 and two coachs with track and controller.happy days. that was 1978 last week i bought six ferry waggon s and two rail express systems brake vans. keeping the Hornby dream alive.
  5. a small change from oxford early ergo aec and leylands to a mid 1970s grill updated octpus eight wheeler bulk tipper and bison in ncb livery. also the foden s80. this lorry was so comin apart from transport images no one has done probably what was one the most common trucks on the road from the 1970s through to the mid 1980s .
  6. I'm modelling fife sheds Thornton and townhill upper which had multiple class 20.triple unit mgr means a big saving when mixing the Hornby tts with the Bachmann dcc sound 20. a bit of detailing on the Hornby could make this a excellent buy. a welcome model Hornby I'll have three please.

  13. the Hornby class 20 tts sound looks like a good buy with (renumbering and light weathering) could look good.i want too model Thornton yard 1977 1980 with a a location of 12 x class 20s a split between. Hornby and Bachmann would be a good save.by the way Bachmann doing the vea. didnt Hornby do the same wagon.
  14. i do to roy.need twelve class 20s too make up a Thornton allocation from the late70s early 80s.would like to give the Hornby tts 20 a shot.(renumbered light weahthering)coud be a good saver if i split between Hornby and Bachmann. got a Bachmann class 37 split head coed and x15 27 ton msv steel tipplers on my shopping list along with the vea & oce it never ends. can wait for a br blue bac with lights.
  15. ​i only seen a maximum of four in a mixed freight on route to Cameronbridge but a rake of twelve behind the forthcoming Bachmann class 37 split headcoad would look great on any layout.i this is one wagon i look forward too purchasing hugh(and a good br brown framed mgr if Hornby would do it )or maybe you could do one
