To continue our celebration of Hornby’s 100th anniversary, TIM SHACKLETON looks to push detail further using quality aftermarket components and simple, easy-to-learn skills. Here he shows what you can do with a Hornby ‘8F’ and ‘Patriot’ to improve these under-rated Hornby ‘OO’ gauge locomotives.
BR Western Region’s motive power roster was extensive, incorporating former Great Western Railway prototypes as well as new BR builds and prototypes. We present a full survey of all the current and forthcoming WR locomotives for ‘OO’ together with listings for ‘N’ and ‘O’ gauge.
Colourful advertising liveries are commonplace on today’s privatised network, but this wasn’t always so. TIM SHACKLETON builds a high-quality kit for one of the most distinctive and unusual vehicles that ran on our steam-era railways – the Palethorpe’s six-wheel van.
