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.
Built between 1917-48.
Once commonly seen at many GWR stations.
Some remained in use well into the diesel era to operate track circuits, coupled to '08' diesel shunters, e.g. at Paddington.
One of the last shunters' trucks in use was at Fowey China Clay Sidings.
