Adding to my Hornby 00 Collection...
#16
Finally we have a very varied mix of 00 gauge wagons, from flatbeds, to coal wagons, tankers, box cars, you name it. The fourth one will probably interest you Super as it is nicely weathered, not too much, not too little and has even a coal load fitted for added realism Smile

Some are slight 'fixer-uppers' but that's what you get when you buy a job lot, some will also benefit from a load to carry, something I've got a few ideas for so watch this space Smile

Remember the other limited edition, in a beautiful wooden case loco I had the other week? Well I've surpassed it with this one, again a lovely wooden case, limited edition certificate etc... but this has two N Class loco's. One is in Southern Rail livery, the other (same class) is in a wartime grey livery which was employed in an effort to help protect them from air raids etc...

The level of detail here is stunning (even without the separate detailing parts/train crews added) including such things as metal 'sprung' (i.e. working) buffers...

Without further ado let's get to it Smile

Here's today's Hornby arrivals, this time a couple of less common models.

Firstly we have a nice example of a Class 86 electric loco, this one being the 'City of Lichfield', in pretty good condition about the only damage I can find is one of the name labels is slightly damaged. But this is something that can be rectified easily or even enhanced by fitting some etched brass name plates or similar.

I've included some close ups as there are some really interesting details on this model including a quite detailed set of cab details with proper controls etc... although this may not be quite as visible from these shots (I'll have to get my SLR out again Smile The other interesting detail is that this model not only has a pantograph, but a real working pantograph. If you notice slightly behind the pantograph there is a small switch, in one position it draws power like most model trains from the wheels/rails, in the other position it uses the overhead pantograph - although of course you would need track with a functioning set of catenary to provide the power.

[Image: IMG_20180419_202659017.jpg]

The other model is a 'Terrier' class 0-6-0 tank loco, this is quite a small loco, physically about the same size as the little 0-4-0 pug loco's or even smaller. However the detail is way greater than most small tank loco's that get modelled. The other interesting thing about this loco is that this is the same class as the real life 'Stepney' which was made into a Thomas character of the same name Smile

It had to happen, finally I get a 00 gauge Hornby Thomas (and carriages), the reason I waited? Well wasn't in a hurry, but more importantly this one is DCC fitted to go with Bill I got the other month Smile

Oh yes, and another Class 08 diesel shunter, this time in LMS livery Smile
