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 Mansell Wheel is a composite wooden railway wheel patented by Richard Mansell the Carriage and Wagon superintendent for the South Eastern Railway in the UK. The design was created in the 1840s and was eventually widely used on passenger railway stock in the UK.


The centre of the wheel was made of teak that eliminated the "ringing" noise from other types of wheel providing a quieter ride for the passengers.
