Pictures of New Prototype Locos from Hornby Images

What a nice way to finish the week - Hornby sending over a bunch of prototype shots for a range of upcoming locomotives. In fact, some of the images are very early and don't even feature the finished liveries... but hopefully you'll still get an idea of what you can expect.

First up in the 42xx Class Locomotives is the GWR Monogram 2-8-0T No. 4283, which comes DCC ready (R3123) for £119.99 and DCC fitted (R3213X) for £137.49. The loco entered service in 1910 and was designed by G. J. Churchward. Features include extensive detail, sprung buffers and NEM couplings.

Up next, Hornby is releasing the Early BR 2-8-0T No. 4266 and again it comes DCC ready (R3124) for £119.99 or DCC fitted (R3124X) for £137.49.
