Wanted - Late Hornby Hall Body

Recommended Posts

Looking for a late/recent Hornby Hall body - "Adderley Hall" or similar era.

 

Zillions of Kneller's and Alberts from the 70s for sale, but nothing recent.

 

Thanks.

From Wikipaedia:

 

The Hornby Railways model of the locomotive is actually a model of a Castle class locomotive, not a Hall. Tri-ang Hornby did release a model of the Hall class in 1966; however, this model was last offered in 1983 as 4930 Hagley Hall,

In 2015 Hornby introduced their model "RailRoad GWR 4-6-0 'Olton Hall' 4900 Hall Class - R3169", originally announced in 2012.[13]

In 2019, Hornby announced a new Harry Potter range, ..............2 separate Hogwarts Castle locomotives with headlight, one being TTS Sound fitted. This is the first Hogwarts Castle model they have released being correctly of a Hall class.

 

 

So do you have an "Olton Hall"    or a "Hogwarts Castle"     on the nameplate?

Apologies, I think I may have confused myself regarding the 'real' and model 'Hogwarts Castle'....

My example is circa 2008 - I believe it is indeed a maroon painted Castle - My confusion was that the 'Hogwarts Castle' in the film was actually a Hall....

It can be a minefield.  I did more research and the statement above from Wiki sums it up.

 

If you want a Hornby Hall and the one for sale is maroon, you either have to buy a very recent one with a headlight (which is a Hall shell)  or the Olton Hall "as preserved" with "GREAT WESTERN" on the tender.

If anybody 'finds' more than one newish Hornby Hall body then please let me know. I have had a DCC ready fully working chassis for years now.

Thanks
