About Hornby

A classic steam locomotive chugs through the rolling hills, stopping at the station to pick up a few passengers before disappearing into a tunnel. This is just one of the idyllic scenes that you can create with Hornby trains. For anyone with a love of locomotives, having a model railway is a dream come true, and if you want to start out in this fascinating hobby, getting a Hornby train set is a good choice. This trusted brand dates back to 1920, when Frank Hornby released his first clockwork train, so you know that when you buy a Hornby set you are buying quality that has stood the test of time. Reliable sellers on eBay offer a huge range of model railway products, including coaches, stations, tracks, and scenic accessories in 0 gauge (1:43.5 scale), OO gauge (1:76 scale), HO gauge (1:87 scale), and N gauge (1:148 scale). There is even something for younger train enthusiasts, in the form of Hornby Thomas the Tank engine merchandise. Whether you are new to the hobby, or an old hat, Hornby trains are sure to provide hours of enjoyment.
