Both Hornby and Bachmann sets use standard OO/HO track which can be expanded with track from the Peco Setrack range. The locos and rolling stock are also compatible with other brands of British OO models, the couplings are very alike and will connect without problems.

A mains powered controller is supplied, either using a variable 12 volt DC output to control train speed, or in the case of DCC train sets a Digital Command Controller supplies track power and sends digital commands to control each locomotive.

The Hornby Railroad range includes several budget priced train packs ideal for adding another train to your train set. Click here for a full list.

Hornby Railways OO Gauge R1202 Mallard Pullman Train Set

On July 3, 1938, Sir Nigel Gresley's 'Mallard' sped down Stoke Bank, south of Grantham on the East Coast Main Line, in a blur of Garter Blue. At milepost 90¼, between Little Bytham and Essendine, the locomotive recorded its highest speed of 126mph. Breaking the 1936 world speed record of 124.5mph for a steam locomotive, previously set by a German engine, the record still stands today. This set is representative of a typical East Coast Pullman train and would have been a familiar sight between London and the North.
