Re: Hornby flogging another dead horse

I went to Harry Potter world about two years ago ,,£5 for a mug of butter beer or an ice cream,anything tv themed I suppose will always attract visitors or buyers.

Re: New Range announcements

Lots of limited editions due the the centenary of Hornby ,,I'm a sucker for special/ limited editions that are sold in the reproduction vintage style boxes ,I think the r3809 Rocket in vintage box would be a nice collectors set along with the sir Nigel Gresley set in the repo Hornby dublo box ,,
