Hornby Magazine

Hornby Magazine

Edited by Mike Wild, Hornby Magazine set out with a new approach and was aimed squarely at newcomers and returnees to the hobby, as well as those who were established in the hobby.

Its mix of inspirational and shows-you-how features, coupled to the best model railway photography and latest product reviews soon caught on as modellers everywhere discovered its fresh, new approach, talking in a language that everyone understood and not assuming everyone reading it was full of technical knowledge.

There will always be at least 90 pages of editorial in every issue of Hornby Magazine, making it the best value read of all the model railway titles. It is regularly promoted at retail outlets and can be found at W H Smiths, Tesco, Sainsbury, Asda, Morrisons, Mills and many other good news outlets, including independent newsagents. Where it isn’t stocked, it can be ordered. Just ask!

Dapol's ‘N’ gauge ‘Western’

Not that long ago British ‘N’ gauge was on its knees. At best we got crude detail and at worst we had crude detail and poor performance. All of that is now history and the standard of detail, finess and performance in today’s British ‘N’ gauge models are rivaling that of their larger ‘OO’ cousins.

Bulleid’s ‘Merchant Navy’

The Southern Railway’s ‘Merchant Navy’ locomotives were some of the best looking steam engines ever built and amongst the most technologically advanced too - but they had some features which proved troublesome in service, as EVAN GREEN-HUGHES relates.

Dapol 'OO' gauge ‘Western’

Few locomotives from the diesel and electric era provoke as much comment, debate and passion as the Western Region’s Swindon/Crewe built Class 52 ‘Westerns’. Dapol set out to produce ‘the’ definitive model of the class for ‘OO’ gauge - this is what we think.

Feature Premium

British Railways 4-VEP EMU

Electrification of Southern England's railway system extended progressively throughout the 20th Century and as it did so new electric trains were built to run on it. One of the most successful designs was the 4-VEP, introduced in 1967 as the network was extended to take in Bournemouth, as EVAN GREEN-HUGHES found out.
