Hornby have today announced their full range for 2019.  The highlights  from a Southern Railway perspective being the brand new tooled ex LBSC A1 / A1x 0-6-0T “Terrier” (in direct competition with the announcement earlier this year of the Rails of Sheffied / Dapol version) Bulleid 1945 built 59ft ‘shortie’ coaching stock, Diagrams 2316 and 2121, and the ex LSWR Warners 20T / SR 24T Diagram 1543 brake vans.

The Hornby continental Arnold range in 1/148 N Gauge also sees a welcome reintroduction of the 5BEL Brighton Belle Set, in the 1934 livery as set 2053.

The aim of this post is to round-up the announcements that are of a Southern Railway / Southern Region interest and new for 2019, I have purposely not relisted those item previous announced and or still to actually appear. An indication of the planned release date via the Quarter system (eg [Q2] is also provided.

Locomotives

In a surprise move the range includes new tooling for the ex LBSC A1/A1x Terrier, the tooling incorporates many of the changes within this class of locomotives in service and preservation. There are also of course a number of new liveries of existing tooling:

Coaches

Being introduced from brand new tooling for 2019 are the Bulleid 59ft ‘Shortie’ coaches. These were part of 18 three coach sets, formed Diagram 2121 BTK – Diagram 2316 CK –  Diagram 2121 BTK, with set numbers 963 to 980. They were ordered in 1944 utilising Maunsell 59ft underframes that were originally constructed in 1940, then stored, when further construction was suspended by the war. Whilst similar in layout to previous Maunsell coaches, with doors for each compartment on the non corridor side (known as Multi-door) , externally they featured the new Bulleid bodyside profile. Bulleid new profile had already been introduced on the 4 Sub EMU set 4101 in 1941 with the body having a continuous curve from floor to cantrail and the characteristic lozenge shaped toplights over the droplight windows.
Hornby are releasing versions to correctly form Sets 965 and 973 in SR ‘Malachite’ green and Sets 968 and 972 in BR(s) green. The BR(s) versions include revised tooling to include: recessed / flush door toplights, later guards door handrail styles, rainstrips, end steps and the reinforcing beading added along the sides at waist the line.
[update 07/01/19] Additional livery historical information kindly supplied by Colin Watts:
Set 965 (Malachite) to Crimson and Cream (CLC)  March 1956 then to BR(S) Green  June 1958
Set 968 (Malachite) to CLC December 1953 then to BR(S) Green July 1957
Set 972 BR(S) Green from CLC February 1958
Set 973 BR(s) Green from CLC November 1957
These are a logical extension to the Hornby range who already have the details of the underframe and SR standard 8ft bogies from their excellent Maunsell coach range.

Wagons

The 2019 range also sees new tooling for the LSWR/SR/BR(s) Warner 20 ton goods brake van. 75 of this type of van were built between 1915 and 1921. They were known to staff as ‘New Vans’ a name which they kept well into the 1950’s! They were up-rated to 24T by the Southern Railway and became SR Diagram 1543.
[Update 11/01/19] tooling allows for variations across the buffer shanks, differing lamp brackets and fix lamps, documents holders, welded and rivetted duckets as well as disc and spoked wheels.
