Any Hornby Collectors here??

Hey everyone.

Just curious to if there are any Hornby collectors here.

Were collecting quite a few limited editions including the commonwealth collection. We have 4 out of the 5, just waiting for the last one to be released.

I have always wondered if there was a site you could go on, put your cert number down and regroup to limited editions to see where they all went. Be neat i think.

what exactly is the commonwealth collection?

I have a Hornby Live Steam Mallard and plan on getting the Flying Scotsman double tender in about a year.

I have quite a bit of Hornby, including 2509 Silver Link in live steam edition. I also have some Bachmann Branchline.

no pictures? fine then please explain whats the point of posting this without pictures? as the banner states - useless. you are collector, but then whats the point of you collection of whatever you choose to collect if you don't showcase this?

Thats such a wiast to buy those beutifully made trains and never even open the box's and use them to their full potential I am a collector of all trains HO but I actually use them because thats what they were made for and do best I mean you can do your own thing but to buy something so beutiful and never even look at! For all you know those boxes could be empty just because you've never looked to see if the product was there and now I may never know what a Hornby common wealth train looks like
Plus foes kind of make this thread useless.

but to ones there own.

Very nice trains Butch. I personally don't like the UK diesels but love all the steams and some of the electrics.
