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.
Based on the 15 cwt series which was produced between 1959 and 1969.
The Bedford CA had a 90 inch wheelbase, quite small by today's standards so they launched a 102 inch version which was designated the CAL, hence the CA became known as the CAS.
