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.

 This 14T tank wagon was used to transport Trumulsion Cold-Applied Bitumen, manufactured by the Graphite Oils Co. of Grimsby.

This example is typical of the tank wagon traffic that would be found on British railways in the 20th century.

Tank wagons were divided into class A and Class B with the less common Class A wagons being built to contain more volatile substances.
