Hornby Model Railway Locomotive Reviews -
Class 0F 0-4-0ST
BLACK 0-4-0 "SMOKEY JOE"
This is a very simple model. It has some nice detailing
touches including a fireman and driver which you can put in the cab. This
model has Hornby's HP motor which I believe is the same one out of the euro
star train. This gives this model a very high top speed. In fact too high a
speed. The model has poor slow speed control starting rather suddenly. For
its size it handles points well and does not stall (although the model I
tested was new). All in all this is a fun cheep model and should be treated
as such. Great model for the kids.
