If you are looking for a present to launch a young modellers hobby, the latest bundles from Hornby might be just the thing for under the tree.
Based on the popular "Family Fun Project", the main Hamper includes a locomotive, coaches, wagons, track, controller and scenic accessories - enough to build a model railway. All the modeller has to do is add a baseboard.
New for Christmas, the set includes a J15 tender engine in place of the 0-4-0 tank. One wagon and a brake van have been replaced with a pair of bogie coaches.
If bought separately, the contents would cost £444 and the price for the set is only £254.99
To add to the collection, an add-on pack containing a loco, two coaches and a pair of wagons is available separately for £129.99
BRM took one of the original Family Fun Projects, built it and then made a few simple enhancements.
