new old stock , This title charts the rise and development of the globally recognised, iconic model train set. The book is both a celebration and a history of Hornby Trains, telling the story of the company from its beginnings in the imagination of a Liverpool shipping clerk, Fred Hornby (who also invented Meccano) through its heyday as industry front runner to its take-over by Triang and, ultimately, the restoration of the Hornby name as a 21st-century global brand. Archive and specially-commissioned photographs of historic sets, rarities, special editions and celebrity owners illustrate the development of the train sets themselves, from clockwork to electric, from tinplate models to a contemporary computer-generated virtual railway.
