Hornby has released images of the decoration samples of the Limited Edition Great Western Rail HST and coaches all in OO/1:76
”Readers of the latest Hornby Magazine will have seen an interesting piece in the “Inside Hornby” column about our upcoming GWR HST. In it, it was revealed that the new release will be coming complete with separate metal ‘GWR’ lettering for optional fitting at home.

The smooth, high detailed metal lettering is created in our factory at the same time as the manufacture of the model itself and originally starts life as a roll of metal. The lettering is then stamped out and all the surplus material is removed, leaving you with a clear, defined decorative piece which when applied to the model stands slightly raised from the body, creating a more realistic and highly detailed effect.

We have taken great care with this feature so that these letters can be fitted precisely over the tampo printed lettering on the locomotive to add what we think will be the perfect finishing touch to the model.

We have just received the decoration sample for the highly anticipated Limited Edition GWR Class 43 HST 125 Train Pack (R3510), complete with separate logo plate and we think they look great! R3510 is now expected in January 2018, and can be pre-ordered from the website or your local stockist.

Also just arrived, the approval samples for the GWR Mk3 coaches to coordinate with the HST set - they look fantastic! Available to pre-order from the website or your local stockist, take a look at the pictures below”.


The GWR Class 43 HST 125 Train Pack will be released in January 2018 and the coaches in October 2017.

R3510 - GWR Class 43 HST 125 Train Pack Limited Edition – OO/1:76
