And hopefully they'll have all pairs of Buffers attached ;)

An interesting theory/rumour going around is the possibility of a 71000 Duke Of Gloucester release(I know,heard that before),but in the same way 60163 Tornado was launched in 3 differing releases(Special L/E detailed,Railroad & another in a set)..........

That could be intresting, if it is true, let's hope Hornby don't lie about the details on the Special edition model

News travels fast these days, a supposed release from Hornby for 2012 is a Thompson O1 2-8-0 and Thompson suburban coaches, could it be that the L1 and B1 have donated parts to make this possible, ( I thought that a K1 might have been the go)

It would certainly make another fine addition to the RTR LNER range. :D

Releasing an O1 today, leaves the door open for a GN/LNER O2 next year, which to me would be a lot more helpful, but O1's were used on the Consett iron ore trains, now if Hornby were to introduce the air discharge iron ore wagons !!!! :shock: :shock:

Not a lot of parts on the loco front, the L1 pony truck I reckon. But that said, the research for the B1 from which the O1's boiler, cylinders, valve gear, and cab layout were derived may well have suggested this as the suitable LNER goods engine. That will be another GCR tender tooled up as well, so will it be Bach or Hornby first to the well liked 'Director'?

Would have preferred a K1 (driving wheels and pony truck common to L1, boiler, cylinders, valve gear, cab layout derived from B1 so actually more parts/research commonality with previous models) mainly because it's a smaller engine, but at least Hornby have now broken their complete 'duck' on LNER tender goods types. Does this eventually make a small LNER 0-6-0 a possibility from them?

More LNER non-corridors. Very welcome but surprising; although for sure they can use lots of underframe parts from the Gresley types. The lav composite is a very useful vehicle and will fill a gap in my BR mk1 sub sets which need a lav compo or three on outer suburban runs behind an L1 or B1.

Really thought the LMS types would be next: the later ones run on the same 57' underframe as the corridor stock, so Hornby have that all tooled up. And look at all the locos out now, suitable to haul these: 4P 2-6-4Ts by Fowler, Stanier, Fairburn, Riddles; 3MTT, 3FT, and 2MTT; Ivatt 2MT and 4MT, Black 5, even 8Fs: and loads of smaller diesels as the Stanier subs lived on to the end of the 60s.

As for the GWR freight tanks, I hope Hornby are doing something clever on the chassis; maybe even articulating the coupled wheelbase (hopefully not going for the simple flangeless centre wheelsets solution). These are long monsters for set track points, and are going to need 'some help' in the chassis to suit the large majority of Hornby's hardcore customer's layouts which as I understand it are mostly set track based...

It's escaped due to a mag going on sale. Reputedly the info then first appeared online on Hornby's own forum (still there), and now it's running around all over the place.

Model Rail issue 165 has published a full list of Hornby's 2012 program and was put on sale early by mistake. Looks like the cat is out of the bag on this one.
To an optimist, a glass is half-full.
To a pessimist, a glass is half-empty.
To an engineer, the glass is twice as big as necessary.

Good! But it better not be a L/E with an extortionate price!
