Today Hornby has announced its first new item for its 2017 range – the Wainwright ‘H’ class 0-4-4T.
Introduced in 1904, 66 were built by the South Eastern and Chatham Railway (SECR) by 1915 at Ashford Works. The last was withdrawn by BR in 1964.
Hornby’s ‘H’ has already reached the stereo sample stage offering a tantalising glimpse of this new model. It is expected to be released in the second half of 2017 with a choice of three liveries and a fourth in a special edition train pack which will also contain a pair of Maunsell push-pull carriages.
Full livery details, pricing and availability will be announced in future Engine Shed blogs on Hornby’s website and you can read more about the ‘H’ in the next issue of Hornby Magazine – HM113, on sale October 13 2016.
