New Tooling for Hornby's Midland Pullman HST
Hornby is developing new tooling for its forthcoming ‘OO' gauge model of Locomotive Services Limited's (LSL) Midland Pullman liveried High Speed Train (HST).
Currently at the CAD drawing stage, Hornby is including the prototype's recently-added centrally mounted headlight above the cab windscreen.
This addition will require new tooling inserts, wiring and assembly processes, but will enable the manufacturer to accurately reflect this unique addition to the Midland Pullman Nanking blue power cars.
Hornby's new 'OO' gauge Midland Pullman HST is being produced as a pair of unique power cars - M43046/M43055 (Cat No. R30077) - together with similarly-liveried Mk 3 trailer cars to enable a full formation to be created in model form.
Prices are set at £314.99 for the power car pack and £36.99 for each of the Mk 3 trailer cars. Delivery is anticipated towards the end of the year.
