The latest issue of Hornby Magazine – HM122, August 2017 – is one sale now marking the 50th anniversary of the end of steam on British Railway’s Southern Region with special features and an exclusive Hornby competition.
This feature packed issue includes the chance to win a trio of late BR steam era Southern Region locomotives – a Hornby ‘West Country’ 4-6-2, ‘S15’ 4-6-0 and ‘M7’ 0-4-4T – while our features turn back the clock to July 1967 and the final weeks in the run up to the end of express main line steam operations. These include a full makeover for Hornby’s rebuilt ‘Merchant Navy’ 4-6-2 to represent the last of the class in service, 35030 Elder Dempster Lines, in its final weeks, 20 train formations for the 1963-1967 period on the Southern and a full feature on Jeremy Everett’s evocative Westbridge layout set in Hampshire during the 1960s transition.
If that wasn’t enough we have a first look at Hornby’s first running sample of the ‘OO’ gauge BR Class 87, reviews of the new Twin Track Sound Bulleid air-smoothed ‘Merchant Navy’, more hands on projects, a guide to modelling level crossings and two more stunning feature layouts.
We also as showcase reader layouts in our new Showcase feature, review the latest products from across the sector and much more.
