New to the Hornby collection in its 100th anniversary year is the latest generation model of Stanier’s first ‘Pacific’ design – the ‘Princess Royal’. MIKE WILD breaks out his tools to give 46207 a digital makeover with the addition of sound, ‘stay alive,’ working lamps and a smoke generator too.
In the latest issue of Hornby Magazine we show how to install digital sound, 'stay alive', working lamps and a smoke generator into Hornby's new 2020 version of the Stanier 'Princess Royal' in 'OO' gauge as part of our Hornby Centenary special issue. Watch the finished model in action here.
In its rush to dispense with steam locomotives, British Railways ordered many new diesels straight from the drawing board. One of the shortest-lived was the Clayton Class 17 – now the subject of a new model from Heljan. EVAN GREEN-HUGHES looks at the history of this handsome, but unreliable class in this feature from HM24 in 2009.
Available now is our monthly feature video from the Hornby Magazine team - the Hornby Magazine Show. This month this 50 minutes programme focuses on a full tour of our 'OO' gauge Southern Region layout Twelve Trees Junction, a visit to the Statfold Barn Railway and more.
