The big announcement in Hornby's 2012 range for diesel and electric era modellers is the GM-Alstom Class 67. Rail Express illustrates the latest developments on this brand new 4mm scale locomotive.

All new Class 67 from Hornby

An obvious gap in the range of quality diesel locomotive models, the likelihood of the ‘OO’ gauge 125mph Class 67 Bo-Bo from Hornby for this year was the worst kept secret in D&E era modelling. Held over from the announcements at the 2011 press conference at the last minute, the loco showed up on the price list distributed with the new catalogue and the game was given away by the ‘high spec’ price and DCC sound options. Using the additional 12 months of development time wisely, the model was shown off in essentially completed form. Three liveries make the first run, EWS maroon/gold as 67001, DB Schenker Maple Leaf red as 67018 Keith Heller and Wrexham & Shropshire silver/grey as 67012 A Shropshire Lad.
