There HAS to be someone on here that had a Hornby train set. I kind of inherited mine from my sister when it consisted of just a couple of locos, think they were a 3 car electric local commuter train and a set of pulman carriages pulled by a magnificent 4/6/4 steam engine called if I'm right Princess Elizabeth. The collection grew quite quickly under my 'ownership' until it had enough rolling stock, locomotives and track for 13 complete train's which could all be accommodated in individual sidings. Bobs models on the Cov rd supplied most of it while some was given to my Mum where she worked, these were of a different gauge so my Dad spent hours converting the engines and carriages so they could run on the 00 track. 'Battle space' rolling stock then came out which had exploding ammunition wagons, satellite launchers etc and a 'Q car ' which the side's fell off to reveal a rocket launcher which off course fired in absolutely random directions . The whole set was still complete until my nephews came along and my sister reclaimed most of it for it to be never seen again. There are a few remaining bits of it left at my Mum's house.
