Hornby Model Railway Brake Van Review



Worth Buying - This is an average model. The model has limitations and does not have a full range of mechanical or detailing features. For a railway model to be rated as "Worth Buying" a model must score between 4 and 7. Hornby LNER 20 Ton Brake Van (R6307A) Rating 6/10

 

The Hornby LNER 20 Ton Brake Van is an above average model but with scope for improvements. The cabin of this version is primarily painted brown with white highlights to represent railings. The chassis is all black with the same white highlights but this time to highlight the running boards

Some of the hand rails on this model are metal but the ones fitted to the cabin are moulded in place and have no gap between the rail and the cab. If these were made from metal and attached to the cab this model would have got a recommended rating. Its worth comparing the picture of this model to the one below.

The Hornby LNER 20 Ton Brake Van does have metal wheels, additional brake hoses and flush glazing, but it only has standard couplings and un-sprung buffers. Strangely this model has an unexpected level of detail under the model. It has the braking gear, worm gear and braking springs associated with a brake van. Unfortunately you cant see this when its in operation.

 


Worth Buying - This is an average model. The model has limitations and does not have a full range of mechanical or detailing features. For a railway model to be rated as "Worth Buying" a model must score between 4 and 7. Hornby BR 20 Ton Brake Van (R6350) Rating 6/10

 

The Hornby BR 20 Ton Brake Van is an above average model but with scope for improvements. The above review also applies to this model except when it comes to the livery. Personally the BR 20 Ton Brake Van is much more attractive and detailed with regard to livery than the LNER model.

This model has the normal overhead power warning signs and information boards. The thing that sticks out to me on this model is the bright yellow and black warning markings on both ends of the cab. This along with the red stripe really brings this model to life.
