Hornby N Gauge
« on: December 04, 2014, 09:43:22 AM »
As a few will be aware, Hornby's Sales and Brand Director, Nat Southworth, provided a Q&A session on RMWeb...

 http://www.rmweb.co.uk/community/index.php?/topic/93322-hornbys-nat-southworth-responds-to-rmweb-members-qa/

Most of it, I'm afraid, was corporate-speak (as to be expected I suppose); however one interesting statement was that Hornby will be expanding their N gauge range. What that will be, who knows, but there are a number 00 models in their range I would love to see in N.

That is good news.  I wonder if it will grow into a range or specific one offs?  I would love a Duke of Gloucester.  ;)

Lets hope if they do market them as Hornby products we can buy them through a dealer and not HAVE to do it direct.

That's great news that they're planning more N gauge items. I've been really impressed with my Brighton Belle so far.

I too am impressed with the Belle and would like to see Hornby extend their range. 

I also hope that the supply chain management get sorted out.  Be nice to have some Locos and stock available to purchase rather than on permanent pre-order....

Does anyone have any idea when Hornby/Arnold propose to or are going to/likely to announce release dates for the various items in their new Arnold N gauge range(apart from The Brighton Belle set which has been announced,or at least in part)?
Also has there been any indication of the proposed prices/úR.R.P. of the various items ?
Many thanks,
Les

I guess we wait until the 17th December when Hornby announce their 2015 plans (apart from the ones they announced at Warley)...

It will be interesting.

It is difficult to look at the Hornby 00 range and identify much that is not already covered by Farish and Dapol or on DJM's radar.

Some duplicates (A3/A4 for example) if superior to current offerings may find an appeal given Hornby's global reach, then there are things like the Class 395 "Javelin"...

Presumably referring to the recent/impending release of the 'OO' 1960s Umber/Cream version of the 'Belle'...

Eh? That's what's being discussed.

The Brighton Belle was released a couple of months back.

Nothing else has been announced, but one assumes all will become clear on the 17th when they announce their 2015 range.

I'd like a 92 if we're playing the 'what can they downsize' game.
