Model Note

Great Little Set.

Note: This was the set my parents bought for me for Christmas 1970. I was six, and it started a life long love of Hornby trains. Now, for the first time in my life, I have the space to be able to permanently set up my much expanded set. And this little engine and its rolling stock will take pride of place.
