Hornby's OO gauge models of this Class 66 named in tribute to a national treasure who raised money for the NHS during the Covid-19 pandemic are being despatched to customers.

Hornby's model of 66731 Captain Tom Moore is something the manufacturer can be proud of, not just for a headline figure of £140,000 to be donated to NHS Charities, but because it's the manufacturer's largest charitable donation to date.

The models have also set a new all-time record for the fastest selling product in the manufacturer's range, with 3,500 units sold in four days – on average one every two minutes and 26 seconds!

Very pleased with it! It's my first model this size and it really needs more track with bigger curves, that's another project for the future!
