Hornby reveals new products for TT:120 range

02 April 2024
We were invited to attend a press preview last month, where Hornby revealed its latest models to join the TT:120 range.

When Hornby announced it would be entering the TT:120 market in October 2022, it was the largest single investment in new tooling by a manufacturer for years, as locomotives, rolling stock, track and accessory range were unveiled.

The new announcements will be welcome news to those modelling in TT:120, as more and more products become available, catering to different eras and locations.

Hornby has built up a strong fan base with its TT:120 club, with around 12,000 members, and we are already seeing new layouts appearing in the scale, including our very own joint project layout with Market Deeping, which had its first exhibition outing in February.

New Hornby J50 Class 

The star of the show has to be the new J50, which is currently at sample stage and will be available initially in three liveries. 

  • TT3024M BR (Early), J50 Class, 0-6-0T, 68983 - Era 4
