Hornby has finalised the livery artwork for its limited edition train pack featuring Hitachi Class 800 test train power cars containing vehicles 811002 and 815002 (Cat No. R3579.

The complex livery isn’t suited to conventional tampo printing techniques and Hornby is currently exploring the possibilities of water labelling and inkjet printing for the limited edition models.

The Class 800 units are expected to be released in winter this year bringing the very latest in rail passenger transport to ‘OO’ gauge.
