well my thoughts are simply amazing and impressive it was definately well worth the wait till today for them to be released instead of the 25th december 2011.The Diamond Jubilee Trainset is interesting as not only does it come with a Gold Plated 6201 Queen Elizabeth(Lizzie) it marks the celebration of the Diamond Jubilee this year. The Double Tender Bittern is also quite interesting aswell maybe they should do one next year of Dominion of New Zealand. there is just alot of suprises to look forward to this year including the New Super Detail class 67 this example shown is in DB SCHENKER livery.
one thing thats interesting is the Hornby 2012 Club Model its simply the tooling of that used for the 2009 model i mean why coudn't they have used a different model for this year.
this loco is called Queen Elizabeth II and has the number 60 on it possibly to celebrate the Diamond Jubilee however so many years ago we already had a Queen Elizabeth II model and carried the number 80 that was a simple 0f Pug locomotive. i think that they should have used that model and gave it this livery and Number or they could have atleast used a different model either the class 06 or the locomotive they use as Little Giant.
apart from that though the 2012 Range is still superb and as a matter of fact i will defenately be getting some of the models from the 2012 Range here they are Listed.
1. the Network Rail GUV to go with my Lima class 31 as i have plans to have a Network Rail Test Train on my layout.
2. The Hornby 2012 wagon
3. The Hornby Nothern Bell Train Pack
4. Hornby Northern Bell Coach Pack
Being honest im mostly looking forward to getting the Nothern Bell trainpack, coachpack and the Class 47 why because the Northern Belle is my favourite dining train and the 47s will go really well with my collection of class 47s which is my all time favourite Diesel Locomotive.
another interesting note is that the Hornby class 91 (Intercity 225) has returned this year in East Coast Mainline Flying Scotsman Livery could this be a Retooled version. we will have to wait and see
