HORNBY: Following the closure of the Canadian Hornby importer in 2023 we have contacted Hornby numerous times to secure continued supply of Hornby products to supply our Canadian customers. Unfortunately Hornby steadfastly refuse to communicate with us. Regretfully we have concluded that Hornby has no desire to support the Canadian market. As stocks of Hornby products are exhausted we are replacing these products with products from other manufacturers.
The 6 wheel milk tanker was developed in the 1930’s from the 4 wheel milk tanker.
This new version provided much better stability at speed and was used extensively right up to the early 1980’s.
Several survive into preservation.
