Train Set Catalogue Information

YEAR INFORMATION
1990 This set contains vintage vehicles from the old days on the Great Western. The engine and coaches are ornately decorated while the inscription Saltney on the brake van suggests the location is around the Chester area.
1991 The beautifully decorated locomotive is fitted with the Hornby patented SSPP (Super Strong Pulling Power) chassis drive system and makes light work of hauling the five vehicle train. The trackside accessories included add interest to setting up and realism to the completed layout.
1992 The track layout includes a point and siding. If the train is reversed smoothly into the siding, vehicles may be detached automatically by stopping when their couplings are immediately over the ramp of the uncoupler track. They may later be collected by pushing them further into the siding to recouple.
1993 A fine model of a typical Great Western branch line train. The point and siding, equipped with an uncoupling track, enables one or more vehicles to be detached from the train and picked up later.
1995 Full of characteristic charm found only in GWR locomotives, the powerful Pannier if reversed smoothly into the siding makes easy work of shunting. By gently reversing and then stopping the wagons over the uncoupling ramp, the vehicles may automatically be disconnected and left in the siding.
1996 You can capture with this set, those halcyon days of yesteryear when the pace of life was more trainquil and it seemed the summers went on forever. The GWR (Great Western Railway) locomotives caught the mood of the times with their characteristic charm. The deceptively powerful Pannier tank in this set is no exception and makes easy work of hauling the varied assortment of wagons around the track and past the level crossing. The siding features a railer/uncoupler track which allows the more adventurous to try their hand at shunting.
