Pat Hammond

A Collector and Author

These books contain every Hornby release you could imagine, including many uncatalogued and one off items.

Pat Hammond must be an amazing man, these books must be the most detailed, brilliant pieces of literature on a model make ever written. Pat once said in an interview that his life changed when the personal computer arrived, he could update his work without having to retype whole pages… Thank heavens for that, as we don't think he has stopped typing and editing since.

His Books

If you find this website interesting, you are going to love these books, they are expensive, but are excellent quality and well worth the money spent. It feels like you own the whole Hornby back catalogue when you have one of these in your hands…

Congratulations to Pat Hammond, and what a gentleman he is too.
