The GWR Grange and SR Q1 being models that have recently/are returning to the range are examples of models that have had a break like what the 50 might be having.

For me my list is quite small from them:
6023 KEII
60019 Bittern
92214
Wartime Black M7
Weathered Grange
Any preserved versions of the 42xx, 5205 and 72xx (if any)
No diesels as far as i know, maybe the class 67 in DBS.
Maunsell Push Pull set.
finally the Crimson and Cream Autocoach x2.
Thats it for me! Quite a short list for once...

Not explicitly explained, for the detail it is probably necessary to wait for Hornby's official January 3rd announcement.

Where the item mentioned is something never previously offered, such as the SR Bogie 'B' van and the Maunsell Pull-Push set, then we must be looking at new tooling. Where the item could be a re-livery of existing models, my gut feeling would be to go with them being re-liveries of existing models. That's for two reasons. Normally when they upgrade an item already in the range with new tooling, there is typically a statement to that effect. Secondly they have six/seven all new coaches for sure: 3 x Thompson, B van, Pull-Push pair, and by the sound of it the Maunsell second related to the Pull-Push vehicles; and that's been the usual number of vehicles tooled from new for a 'coming year' announcement.

As long as there are no obvious chassis problems with the 2-8-0 tanks, they should fly out. They've been on wish lists for ages.

If they are in GWR, LMS, SR or LNER livery they will be something I will aim to get at some point. :D

My list is probably the same as Kenny's, but I might also buy a O1 and the Railroad Range Schools

Hi Gareth,

I know that the BR Maroon Gresley coaches are the detailed version and these look like the middle beading has been corrected, if you look at Hattons or Rails website you can see the latest version. The LMS staniers were new tooling a couple of years ago and the SR Maunsell Push-Pull will be new tooling, and the Thompson suburbans too. Don't know about the rest.

It do sound like the 67 has had at least partial retooling to bring it into line with the best diesels in Hornby's range. It is after all one of only six diesel loco types that are the 'exclusive' possessors of in OO form and they may well be thinking best to close the door on any competition. With practically all the mainline diesels now having models, more duplications from Heljan and Dapol are likely, and Dapol in particular look to be going after having the 'best' model in any type they chose to compete on, and are not afraid to call in enthusiast expertise to get it right.

There are not many hardcore LNER/BR(ER) types detectable on this site (they do of course have an exclusive place all their own on the net) so perhaps low interest in the O1 here is unsurprising. I will be having one of course. This will make it practically possible to restage BR's 1948 freight engine trials along with an 8F, 28xx, WD - only the WD 2-10-0 is missing and I wouldn't bet against Bachmann knocking that out in the next 5 years - perhaps Hornby need some nifty marketing to promote that idea.

I should think Hornby's sales team would be turning somersaults if that purchase intent reflected a typical customer. As I understand it the average customer might just allow him or herself a loco a year and a few vehicles or other bits and pieces.
