HORNBY TRAINS - A name that harkens back to the earliest days of the century and still quickens the heart today!
Three model train producers have been continuously in production for over 100 years. They have become world-famous for quality and variety... and longevity! These companies are: Lionel, Marklin and HORNBY.
HORNBY'S founder, Frank Hornby, made a fortune on his meccano sets (as did A.C. Gilbert with his Erector sets), and by the early 1900's, HORNBY TRAINS was on its way to becoming a household word.
Hornby pioneered OO gauge with its Hornby-Dublo (for double O) two and three rail models... and was in full stride following WWII. Putting quality and tradition first, he clung to the diecast locomotives and wonderful tin-plate wagons and accessories. And today, HORNBY is one of the HO/OO giants!
We are English train fanatics here at
MODEL TRAIN CLASSICS, LLC. We
stock a good supply of the wonderful
HO/OO HORNBY coaches, charming
goods wagons, and even many British and
"continental" building styles. The new
range of SCALEDALE buildings is
absolutely superb and blends well with our
other British ouline buildings.
HORNBY TRAINS has always been
famous for featuring the power and majesty
of the many steam and diesel locomotives
that hauled everything from heavy freights
to luxurious passenger trains the length
and breadth of England, Scotland and
Wales. Our museum features HORNBY
classics dating back to pre-WWII, and traces HORNBY'S evolution from the days of HORNBY-DUBLO through the products of ROVEX, LINE BROS., TRI-ANG/HORNBY, and finally the HORNBY of today. All for you to enjoy and savor.
