Affiliate Marketing Disclosure

This site contains affiliate links for which we may be compensated.

hornbyguide.com started out as a ‘hobby site’ and still is a 'hobby site' but partially funded by affiliate marketing and advertising revenue.

The page sets out our affiliate marketing policy and lists our partners.

How Affiliate Marketing Works

When you make a purchase or, sometimes, carry out some other action as direct result of clicking on a link at hornbyguide.com, we will receive a small commission.

For example, when you click on a link in our Right Now on eBay section to visit ebay then purchase the model train in question, we will receive a commission. In fact, we will receive one whether you buy model trains or something else entirely.

The level of commission varies depending on the partner but generally it's a couple of percent of the price of the item you purchase.

Our Partners



Many thanks to the users on hornbyguide.com, as we would not exist without you occasionally clicking links. Websites are expensive to run and as this is a fan site that is free to use thanks to these users.

Thanks to our Affiliates for making this all possilbe. We love ebay specifically as they allow us to connect with other like minded fans and collect items we once only dreamed of...
