Famous Trains Acquires Hitachi Class 800.

Just like the Great Western Railway franchise out of Paddington, Famous Trains now runs a model Class 800 streamlined bi-mode unit, in full GWR dark green livery.

This is Hornby's latest model train, just on sale for the first time this week, and looks absolutely superb running on our big 00-scale model railway. The five carriages have a very high level of detail, particularly on the roofs and around the bogies. We know the train is going to be popular among our visitors.

It has been seen by our visitors and has gained some admiring looks.
