And now a class 91 + mk4 IC 225 set from Cavalex

Postby Bigmet » Mon Mar 04, 2019 11:42 am

Yet another small player bidding to produce relatively 'big stuff'. Track record: have produced a wagon to a very good standard. This is mightily ambitious by comparison.

Will Hornby charge into the breach with yet another model already in development revealed? Their current IC225 has been looking inadequate ever since I re-entered railway modelling twenty years ago.

Seems to be their policy now.

Who knows, a small firm setting out to launch a top end product can't turn round and say it passes the "three foot rule" which Hornby's existing product just about passes. Depends on how the "must have all the bells and whistles" collectors combined with "it's good enough for me" and or"I get pleasure from adding details" brigade stacks up.

Yes. But only the class 91, no new models of the mk4 and DVT.

Cavalex have formally abandoned offering the OO model, but are continuing with the N gauge version.

This model has now been abandoned, following Hornby's intention to produce a model to their current standards.
