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.

Austin was synonymous with taxis since the end of the 1920's, when dealers Mann and Overton sponsored a new Austin cab for London.

This LL or Low Loader first appeared in 1934 and became an instant success, due mainly to its very attractive price, as well as being very reliable.

Taxi fleets often had their own paint scheme and the Austin LL taxi-cab appeared in several colours, but the most popular was black.
