Phil Parker examines one of Hornby's newly-announced generic pre-grouping coaches for a first look.
One of the biggest surprises in the Hornby 2021 announcements is a range of four and six-wheel pre-grouping coaches. Even more amazing – the models are ready for the shops and we've seen one for review.
Phil Parker takes a first look at the model and demonstrates some of its interesting features:
Although this isn't a model of a specific coach, it appears authentic and in-keeping with the style of rolling stock from the era. With a choice of liveries, and available in four- and six-wheel guises, there's a model to suit many pre-grouping era layouts.
