Two brand new train sets have just been released by Hornby, just in time for Christmas. Adding to their growing range of Steam era sets, these new offerings are set to be sure fire winners this winter.
R1169 Tornado Pullman Express Set
Capturing the opulence and elegance of high class, Pullman travel between the two World Wars of the 20th century, the Tornado Pullman Express set features the stunning R3098 BR 4-6-2 Peppercorn Class “Tornado” Special Edition and a rake of three top quality Pullman coaches, plus the usual oval of track, Track Pack A, Midimat, plus an analogue controller and transformer too.
R1138 GWR Passenger Freight
Next up, the more conservative GWR Passenger Freight set contains the petite, but impressively powerful GWR 0-4-0 locomotive hauling two open wagons. Coupled with a 3rd radius starter oval, plus track pack A and a Midimat and controller, this small but perfectly formed set has the potential to be the beginnings of a lifelong hobby for many. A great budget steam set for Christmas in our books.
