Hornby have today announced their full range for 2017. As with the range for 2016 new tooling announcements fro 2017 have already been made during the last year via their informative Engineshed blog and a presentation /launch at the Warley National Model Railway Exhibition. These from a Southern Railway perspective has already included the announcement last September of the ex SECR 0-4-4T H class Tank.

[Updated 13/01/17] R3566 – BR 4-6-2 ‘British India Line’ Rebuild Bulleid Merchant Navy Pacific number ‘35018’ has been changed to be 35014 ‘Nederland Line’ due to the unique detail differences of 35018 as the pioneer rebuilt of the class.
[Updated 16/01/17] Confirmation that R3568 – BR Class 71 ‘E5018’ will be in BR Green Livery with plain green ends.

It is good to see that Hornby, with a little advice, understand and acted upon the need to produce SR / BR(s) coaching stock to make up suitable set formations. The sets chosen by Hornby for the Maunsell high window style being 243 and 247 in SR and BR liveries respectively were two of the seven four coach sets 241 to 247 formed between March 1932 and April 1933 for use on the South Western section. A further release of the high window version of the Maunsells has been very often requested and these are the most logical sets to choose of that type of restriction 4 coach (as opposed to the narrower Hastings line stock of the same period) as other sets of that type comprised of a greater number of coaches so this creates correct and easily achievable sets.

Hornby’s new coach tooling for 2017 comprises of BR Mk 1 Brake Standard Open (BSO) and First Open (FO) coaches  neither of which are being produced in BR(s) green this year.

Pullman Coaches

As is expected the Hornby range always includes a number of Pullman coaches, due Q1 2017 in 1950’s style livery, they are as follows:

  • R4738 – First Class Parlour Car ‘Minerva’
  • R4739 – Second Class Parloour Car ‘Car No.34’
  • R4740 – First Class Kitchen Car ‘Argus’
  • R4741 – Second Class Kitchen Car ‘ Car No. 58’
  • R4742 – Second Class Brake Car ‘Car No. 162’

Wagons

  • R6827 – SR Cattle truck in Pre 1936 large SR lettered livery, number 553767 – Maunsell diagram 1529. [Q4]
  • R6827A – SR Cattle truck in Pre 1936 large SR lettered livery, number 3768 – Maunsell diagram 1529. [Q4]
  • R6826 – BR ex SR Cattle truck –  Bauxite livery, number B891313 – Bulleid diagram 1530. [Q4]
  • R6826A – BR ex SR Cattle truck –  Bauxite livery, number B891214 – Bulleid diagram 1530 (Note: this appears to be an incorrect running number as listed by Hornby and is possibly a typo that should perhaps be B891314, I am checking this with Hornby). [Q4]
    Note: the 2017 Hornby Catalogue has incorrectly transposed the diagram numbers in its headings for these cattle trucks but the illustrations are correct.
  • R6802 – SR ex LBSC Brake Van in post 1936 Small lettered SR livery. [Q2]
  • R6775 – SR Vent Van in in Pre 1936 large SR lettered livery. [Q2]

Hornby’s new wagon tooling for 2017 comprises of a GWR 20 ton Diagram AA15 ‘Toad’ brake van.

Railroad range

The Hornby Railroad range contains models from older tooling to suit a lower costs market segment and includes the following SR related items:

  • R3586 – BR 4-4-0 Schools Class V number 30935 ‘Sevenoaks’ in BR Brunswick Green early crest livery
  • R3591 – BR Class 73 number E6002 in early BR Green livery
  • R4743 and R4744 – SR ‘generic’ Composite and Brake Third respectively in SR malachite green livery

The full Hornby 2017 range can be found on the Hornby website here. The issues affecting Hornby over the last few years has been well publicised and discussed elsewhere but this range, including items carried over from 2016 and the slightly fewer new tooled models for this year shows the practical and conservative approach being taken by the new management team. I hope that this and their apparent positive re-engagement with the retailers will hopefully lead to a prosperous 2017 for all.

Announced as part of their range for 2016 this time last year the SR cattle trucks (technically correctly termed as being trucks being a sub set of wagons) have arrived in the last week or so from Hornby and certainly raises the bar again for rolling stock.

Diagram 1529 ex SR Cattle Truck in BR livery

Diagram 1529 ex SR Maunsell Cattle Truck in BR livery

Hornby have produced two different diagrams of SR truck. The first is a Maunsell version to Diagram 1529. Introduced in 1930 a total of 299 cattle trucks to this diagram were built to essentially the same design as the the previous SR built trucks (Diagram 1515)  except being on a steel on a 10’6″ rather than wood underframe, that were themselves derived from an existing pre-groupling ex SECR design. The final batch of 100 cattle trucks to this Diagram were introduced in 1939.
The two versions of the Diagram 1529 cattle truck released by Hornby, both in BR livery, are as follows: R6737, with running number S53732 and R6737A, with running number S53691.

Diagram 1530 Bullied Cattle truck in SR livery

Diagram 1530 SR Bullied Cattle truck in SR livery

The second is the later Bulleid version introduced in 1947 to diagram 1530. These trucks differed in construction with the end planks being replaced by plywood, reinforced on the inside by metal (I believe, in typical SR not throwing anything away style, from the metal left over when Bulleid carriage windows were stamped out from the sides).

Dia 1530, higher view, showing the aluminium roof panels

Dia 1530, higher view, showing the aluminium roof panels

The roof boards were also aluminum sheets rather than wooden. Finally the brake gear was modified to give compensated and equalised brake forces on all brake blocks and also the handbrake was lever moved to the end of the wagon to assist when shunting as it meant the lever was less likely to get covered in  deposits from the wagon inhabitants, I will leave you to guess what I mean. Although due to their introduction date the SR livery would be thought of as being very short lived the fact that such trucks would not be repainted often they survived in this livery for a number of years, sometimes with just the SR on the sides and the ‘R’ of the ‘SR’ on the ends being removed.
The two versions released by Hornby, of the Diagram 1530 cattle truck both in SR small lettered livery, are as follows: R6735 with running number 52478 and R6735A with running number 52503.

I will pretty much let the pictures on this post do the talking as Hornby have captured these cattle trucks exceptionally well and I know they have been ably assisted by friend and Southern Coaching and Wagon stock guru Mike King. Hornby’s attention to detail shines through including all the, sometimes subtle, differences between the two Diagrams such as:  body ends, brake gear, brake handles, vacuum pipes, roof construction, tie bars (Diagram 1529 only) even down to the correct split spoked wheels (a first for Hornby I believe) on the Diagram 1529 and disc wheels on the Diagram 1530 trucks. My only one question is the colour of the floor and curb rail on the SR version as this appears to be bauxite in colour, perhaps they are trying to represent varnished wood but either way I do not think this is correct (I will be touching mine up with SR brown prior to weathering).

Many have commented that the livery choice of BR livery for both the Maunsell Diagram 1529 trucks and the short lived Southern livery for both the Bulleid Diagram 1530 wagons was perhaps a little odd and it would have made more sense to either do one livery version of each or the Maunsell version being the SR livery version (with either pre or post 1936 styles possible i.e. large SR lettering or small SR lettering).

Cattle trucks Dia 1530 and Dia 1529

Hornby Cattle trucks Dia 1530 (L) and Dia 1529 (R)

Although I agree that perhaps this would have been preferable, I can also understand that the way things are manufactured these days it puts possible constraints on multiple livery variations for one given manufacturing run bar a simple change of number. I am sure that other livery variations will be announced in due course, even though I intend to back date to SR liveries, a mix of large and small lettered style, my Diagram 1529 trucks.

Overall Hornby should be commended for these two cattle trucks. I am sure many, not just those modelling the SR or BR(s), will be adding a few to their fleets.

As has been evident over the last 12 months Hornby have changed the way in which they are announcing new produces to market, moving away from a single announcement around Christmas time, and have already made headline announcements of some of the new models for 2016 during the year. These from a Southern Railway perspective had included Bullied Merchant Navy Pacifics in original air smoothed form (February 2015) and ex LSWR 58ft non corridor coaching stock (June 2015). Hornby have today (26/11) just prior to this weekends Warley National Model Railway exhibition announced here the full details of their entire 2016 which has included a number of previously unannounced items including a SR diagrams 1529 and 1530 cattle trucks from new tooling, the latter being the Bulleid version with plywood ends [Edit 07/01/16. Hornby have now further clarified and confirmed these releases as being two different running numbers in SR livery for the Dia 1530 style and the Dia 1529 style will be two different running in BR livery, with the liveries reversed for 2017]&nbsp The aim of this post is to round up the announcements that are of a Southern Railway / Southern Region interest, although some details are still to be confirmed and I will update this post once further information becomes available. Also two new models will be further announced at 1.30pm direct from the Warley National Model Railway exhibition this Saturday.
