Hornby's ‘OO’ gauge Class 390 Pendolino makes a welcome return following an extended break from the range. Surprisingly, since its announcement in 2006, Hornby's 4mm scale model of the popular West Coast Main Line (WCML) Electric Multiple Units (EMUs) has only appeared as 390012 Virgin Star and 390045 101 Squadron in Virgin Trains’ distinctive red and silver colour scheme. Since then, there has been much transformation to the WCML with a new operator and a new colour scheme applied to the existing fleet of nine and 11-car Pendolino sets.
