The latest issue of Hornby Magazine – HM154, April 2020 – is on sale from today (March 5 2020) offering a FREE set of Sankey Scenics BR Mk 1 carriage roof boards as well as 164 pages, an exclusive competition to win a Hornby LMS ‘Princess Royal’ 4-6-2 and much more.
Highlights of this issue include Greg Brookes outstanding ‘EM’ gauge home based layout Shenston Road. This huge 27ft long layout models the late 1960s and early 1970s in the West Midlands when diesel-hydraulics could still be seen alongside diesel-electric traction immediately after the end of steam. Our 10-page feature takes a full tour of this extensive layout which includes a station, steelworks, mainline running and hidden storage sidings.
We also have an exclusive interview with Hornby’s Simon Kohler and Britain’s favourite model maker past, present and future while Hornby also headlines our review section with the release of its sought after all-new model of Stephenson’s Rocket and the LMS Stanier ‘Princess Royal’ in ‘OO’. These are joined by new releases from Dapol, Accurascale, Oxford Diecast and more.
Our team also shows how to weather Freightliner Class 66s, how to build a waterfall and how to install ZIMO digital sound, stay alive and firebox flicker into a Bachmann ‘9F’ to mark the 60th anniversary of the construction of BR’s last steam locomotive in March 1960.
You can also watch a full round of video reviews right here on the Hornby Magazine website and as well as our video interviews with Accurascale and KMS Railtech from Model Rail Scotland and our third online Layout Update video.
