A fantastic Travelling Post Office Set with a working trackside post bag collection feature. Before the development of the British motorway system millions of letters were shipped from town to town by railway. Many of these mail trains travelled at night and included a TPO (Travelling Post Office) coach in which bags of letters and small parcels were collected, sorted and then dropped off in bags at the relevant stations along the route.
This set not only includes a deceptively powerful GWR 0-4-0 locomotive but also a TPO and support Clerestory brake coach. The “net” projects from the coach to scoop the mailbag from the trackside pick-up hook. The bag is then automatically ejected into the trackside receiving bin at the place of delivery. This set also includes a MidiMat, as well as an oval of track with siding which can be extended using the Track Packs available separately.

A Eurostar cutting through the Kent countryside heading for the Continent at 300kph is a wonderful sight to behold yet for those on board the feeling of such speed is minimal. This year sees the familiar grey livery give way to the fresh and striking colours of the new Eurostar trains with their eye-catching blue / grey colour scheme and newly refurbished interiors.
The Hornby model replicates this new livery both in the four car train set and the separately available additional “Divisible Coaches”. The stunning Hornby train set features a Power driving unit, dummy driving unit and two passenger saloons. The model includes flush glazing, detailed roof panels and simulated pantographs. The track circuit sits easily on the 1600 x 1180 MidiMat and by adding Hornby Track and Building packs can soon be developed into a very effective model railway layout. Train suitable for 2nd radius curves or greater.
This exciting and dynamic train set featuring the 4 car Virgin Trains Pendolino and carries the latest livery which incorporates the Alstom branding as well as the instantly recognisable logo of Virgin.

An exceptionally powerful locomotive was required to haul the LNER express passenger trains along the final part of the difficult and demanding East Coast Main Line from London to Aberdeen. Such a locomotive was the awesome LNER Class P2, ‘Cock O’ the North’.
The model LNER ‘Cock O’ the North’ locomotive and simulated teak coaches included in this set help to capture those exciting days of train travel in the 1930s when trains such as the one depicted in this set would cut through the Scottish countryside and would be without question the ‘Master of the Glens’.
This set also includes a MidiMat, on which the track supplied can be placed. Additional Track Packs and accessory packs can be added to extend the layout to a fully functioning model railway.
The easy and effective way of entering the Digital World of model railways! The powerful 0-6-0 tank locomotive can make easy work of the three wagons included in this set. The Select control unit can have allocated to it up to 60 locomotives and 40 points or operating accessories (See page 30) and is therefore ideally suited to those who wish to build on this train set and gradually create a fully functioning layout. The MidiMat included with this set can certainly help with the development of a functioning model railway with extensions being made easy with the addition of extra track packs and building packs.
S&DJR 0-6-0 Jinty Locomotive, Tank Wagon, PO 7 Plank Open Wagon, Brake Van, Track: Starter Oval plus Extension Track Pack A (with includes a point and buffer stop), Hornby MidiMat, Select Digital Control Unit
You can really see the benefits of Digital Control once this set is assembled. Each of the two locomotives has a decoder factory fitted and are immediately ready for operation. Independent control is guaranteed for each loco even though they may both be on the same track. When the powerful diesel locomotive is coupled to the four wagons included with the set, the Class 08 diesel can then pull them round the circuit just stopping in front of the little BR 0-6-0 J83'. The BR 0-6-0 J83 can then be reversed carefully so that it couples to the front of the 08. Then by programming the engines to work in unison the double headed train can move off down the track. The set includes a new design Hornby TrakMat.

The “Silver Bullets” are one of the few iconic freight trains still running in the United Kingdom.
Containing china clay used for the production of lightweight coated paper for magazines, catalogues and brochures, this traffic flow runs from either Antwerp Docks in Belgium where imported Brazilian china clay slurry (kaolin) is loaded, or from Burngullow in Cornwall to UPM-Kymmene’s Caledonian Paper Mill in Irvine – one of the UK’s longest continuous freight hauls.
This starter set captures the spirit of the Burngullow to Irvine flow, which although nowadays punctuated with layovers at Exeter’s Riverside Yard or Newport’s Alexandra Dock Junction, represents a colourful and very welcome sight to the modern railway. We chose our limited edition Class 66 001 in DB Schenker traffic red livery and three pristine ICA “Silver Bullet” bogie tank wagons to form the basis of the set and if you suspend your disbelief for just a second, you can imagine this train thundering past you while you walk along that famous Teignmouth sea wall…
