    Hornby APT 2020

    Perhaps they along with more new Hornby releases are on the Ever Given or perhaps not as she was in front of the queue. So Perhaps a few more behind her are still sailing!

    Hornby APT 2020

    5 car pack now listed for December 2021. 7 car pack now listed for January 2022. Coach packs listed for October 2021.
  3. I have posted this post in a previous thread although this one is cropped and edited from the original photo. As it is relevant to this thread. Here it is Saturday December 25 1993 better know as Christmas Day age 2. This was my favorite present this year. This R258 Hornby Thomas Clockwork Passenger Playtrain set. With an attached full image taken from the 1990 Hornby catalogue and a photo of the train set in full showing the full product. I believe it must be the very moment when I became a ferroequinologist and it was captured on camera and it never left me!

    The national grid is almost 100 years old well in a few years time late 1920s early 1930s as well!. The electricity Transmission towers or pylons have certainly aged well in appearance!

    Apologies yes I was meant to say testing in 1979/1980. Yes Well how amazing would it be if they actually arrive on our door steps on December 7th or before to run it on the 40th Anniversary date?
  6. All of the Class 91's are looking stunning, and this will not be how the actual finish products will look as the ES mentions that they will have a different paint finish to these decorated samples It amazes me how they can look even more fantastic then these samples! I always go for the original liveries BR periods Pre-TOPS, TOPS and BR Sectorisation. of diesel electric locos DMUs EMUs DEMUs rolling stock etc, in less it is modern Privatisation and post periods then i'll buy whichever which I like the best. Being from Devon I have the Paddington and Isambard Kingdom Brunel GWR Hitachi 800 Classes although the Azuma LNER liveries are also very stunning! in 2015 I bought the Class 390 Virgin Trains Pendolino train set and I couldn't get the additional coaches, So I bought the new Avanti Pendolino with the coaches just to have the full train! So yes i'll look forward to my APT-P , Class 91, Class 43 DVT, the new MK4 carriages and MK4 DVT all in TOPS and BR Sectorisation.
  7. Oxford diecasts any scale are incredible with the attention to details including some so tiny! They look fantastic on model railways. cars vehicles, vans, lorries etc Hornby are very lucky that they now have another fantastic brand with access to their new tooling's and copyright brands, companies etc Royal Mail, Sunblest ,CO-OP, British Rail, Southern Electricity, Unigate, Walls independent Ice Cream Vans etc there are only more fantastic diecasts to come hopefully. I love everything Oxford Diecast produce and one of my favourites is the 1:76 Sherpa Van 1980 1981 Royal Mail Wales I have this one so hopefully I can complete this with a Sherpa Royal Mail van can be added in the future.

    It could appear in the 2022 catalogue as listed as available that is assuming it is released before or by Christmas. in the 2021 catalogue for example the Centenary Peckett as is listed as available as are a lot of the 2020 range that was released in 2020 without listing which ones they are these are listed in the 2021 catalogue as also available . It could be that the APT-P was only intended for the 2020 year range as it was Hornby's centenary, the 40th Anniversary of the original Hornby model and the 40th Anniversary it entered service. I could be wrong though! If there is more demand it is likely another batch of both sets and coach packs could be produced, then again you may well just ask would Hornby really spend multi thousands on new tooling for a new train pack for just one production run and that's it? I guess anything is possible with Hornby as long is there is enough demand etc then this may well indeed not be last APT-P train pack and coaches etc produced in future years to come. The best and worst case scenario the APT-Ps any sets could be issued / reissued before or after the next 10 years possibly if there is more demand for APT-Ps , Again I could be completely wrong on all this and everything else well.

    Apologies if this has already been mentioned discussed etc But I have noticed that all of the Hornby SKU' coaches and NDM are all 27.6cm in length including the TBF which the actual size of this one is 21.10 in meters and the NDM is 20.40m all the other coaches TS, TRBS, TU, and TF are all also 27.6cm however the length of these cars are all 21.00 in meters. As seen here APT-P Vehicle Specifications I don't want to come across as being picky or moaning or complaining but I do hope this is just the automated length and all of these cars will actually have the correct different lengths. As modelers collectors etc authenticity and accuracy is a must as I'm sure we will all agree there. As I know Simon Kohler explained that the LNER, P2 Class, 2-8-2, 2007 ˜Prince of Wales ™ - Era 11 measurements are correct and it is slightly different to toolings in height for the LNER, P2 Class, 2-8-2, 2002 ˜Earl Marischal ™ - Era 3.

    I guess so I really did buy it as I didn't think another production run would be happening for a few more years. But I do get all the paperwork booklet certificate signed by (hello Simon!) packaging etc as it was a the first production run of a Limited Edition so it' snot all bad . I'd love to see a behind the scenes video from Hornby about the APT-P. As I really enjoyed the recent one of the 4 wheel and 6 wheel coaches with the designer himself Sam Watkins. A very fantastic facsinating Insight into how the products get from mind to actual product it is almost like The Engine Shed has brought to life on a YouTube video. Please can we have more of these Hornby? off topic I really enjoy my LNWR and LSWR coaches.

    Simon wanted to reintroduce the the APT-P for the 2012 range I think we have alot to thank him for! I wonder if it was down to him that we finally got a newly tooled APT.
