Hornby EWS Ballast wagon (Seacow)
Hornby EWS Ballast wagon (seacow)
(R6286A, B or C)
This new model by Hornby
(R6286) has to be the most detailed wagon I have seen. Hornby's seacow puts the
old Lima model (£14 RRP) to shame. Look at the picture below. on the left is the
old Lima seacow model and on the right the new Hornby seacow model.
The new Hornby Seacow has the
Weathering - ballast shoots have been weathered to resemble ballast dust and the
wheels have been weathered and look rusted.
Fine pipe detailing (incredibly fine)
Brass wheels (weathered)
Comes in 3 numbers.
Hornby Seacow takes standard Hornby points with ease and at speed. Runs quite
and smooth along the track. The fine detail look delicates but feels
The Hornby model is in a
different league to the Lima model. I can see the price of second hand lima
seacows which has been at about £14 falling drastically. I personally have all 5
different numbered seacows which lima produced and thought they were great, but
now I am considing selling them to buy more Hornby seacows.
For the price (RRP 18.50, but more like £16 online)
I don’t see how you can go wrong buying this model. All in all an excellent
model. Well done Hornby.
