Hornby 2019 Catalogue Errors

Postby ttreba » Sat Jan 12, 2019 8:19 pm

I've only spotted one so far, and that was only by chance, but thought it might be useful to list them for reference and to hopefully avoid any surprises. Please add any that you come across.

It seems the product codes for the GWR and SR 4 Wheel coaches have been transposed:

Catalogue R4672 = GWR, website and most retailers have it as R4673.
Catalogue R4673 = SR, website and most retailers have it as R4672.

Gra

edit to correct my own error :oops:

Something obviously wrong on page 70 - the B17s cannot all be the same length given the different tenders involved.
There is also supposed to a NEM symbol next to models with NEM coupling sockets but it only appears for wagons.
On the other hand they have used two symbols (old and new versions) next to all DCC Sound locos!
A big omission is that they do not give any dimensions to any buildings, potentially far more useful than the lengths of locos etc that they do give.

#Three wheels on my wagon, and I keep rolling along #

I presume they are for use on Hornby Three Rail?
