Hornby Class 87 exclusive first review


Headlining the latest issue of Hornby Magazine – HM132, June 2018, on sale from May 10 2018 – is an exclusive first review of Hornby’s new ‘OO’ gauge model of the BR Class 87 Bo-Bo overhead electric.

This new release is joined by features explaining how to model overhead catenary with Peco’s masts and spans, a feature on exhibition layout Hatch End which recreates a six track stretch of the West Coast Main Line in ‘N’ gauge and Reality Check which goes into detail on the history of the Class 87s.

Also in this issue is Tony Weber’s stunning ‘OO’ gauge home layout Wakefield West which he is currently developing in Australia modelling the 1950s in the West Riding together with Steve Howe’s rural Cornish goods byway, Lower Rose Goods, modelled to ‘P4’ standards.

In the news we profile the mid-year announcements by Hornby in full, including detailed listings and catalogue numbers, as well as giving you the full story on Hatton’s brand new ‘OO’ gauge Class 66 project and more. In the reviews the Class 87 is joined by Heljan’s GWR ’47XX’ 2-8-0 and Hatton’s Beilhack snowplough for ‘OO’, Dapol’s new issue of the GWR ’74XX’ 0-6-0PT for ‘O’ gauge and much more.
