Flight of the Mallard Train Set from Hornby

We have received further stock of these very popular sets this week

Ok, this is not really shop news, but none-the-less, it is important news for us here in Hull -

Hull has been proclaimed the UK's next City of Culture, beating Leicester, Dundee and Swansea Bay to the right to hold the title in 2017.



Two variations of this loco (one plain green and one in GWR livery) have arrived in the shop as scheduled today, 8th November ...

very nice they are too ... they run beautifully and we are selling them at £225, so why not treat yourself for Christmas.
