Just ordered 3 of the D-Tec combi trailers. I don't care about the Tesco containers or the cabs for that matter. I'll be mixing and matching assorted containers on the backs of these.

Three's just the start, if I get to do an intermodal terminal, I'll need more trailers.

BTW I got a Train Save Reach Stacker, it's 1/160, I think but looks OK, can't pick up a container though!.

Regards,

John P

Also the containers un-clip from the 1/150 Tomytec trailers

These are nice little models and better than the chunky white metal models

Hornby Hobbies has raised an additional £12 million in share capital today and plans to use £1.6 million of it to buy 49% of LCD Enterprises, the holding company for Oxford Diecast Limited.

Bedtime reading here on page 132 and post #3281. Sleep well.

I didn't see that coming. 8)

Is this the precursor to an Oxford Diecast buyout of Hornby? :D

I understand that Hornby have made a number of acquisitions themselves in the last few years. Hornby have issued a warning to shareholders, and they have said there will be no knockdown of prices to retailers.

Something seems to have gone wrong for them.

Is there more products than ever out there, so they have been competing for market share?

Have some of their acquistions been expensive to buy, and/or have underperformed ?(IMO Humbrol acrylics are pretty poor, and their varnish has also come in for a lot of flack)

Bachmann have been out shopping for other manufacturers. Maybe Hornby & Oxford joining up gives them both a sense of protection, or conversely a sense of more potential value?

It will be intersting to see how this unfolds, and importantly for us any advantages it may bring.

Interesting times ahead maybe...
