Hornby Updates 26/07/2019

Hornby have shared some updates and images of some exciting forthcoming releases.

Firstly featured on the front of the Hornby catalogue, it is safe to say that the Princess Royal is a central part of the 2019 range. As the model is expected later in the year there has not been a great deal to show you until now.

Hornby have shared a first look at what is simply a starting model. Needless to say the image shows the Princess Royal at the very earliest stage of development and there is much more work to do and we will be returning to the development of the 'Princess' as further samples are received.
