Hornby Western Rover Model Train Set

For so long the lifeblood of the rural economy, Britain s sleepy rural branch lines and light railways were, for many communities, the only reliable link to the outside world of the transpiration of freight. Many of these lines were built during the 19th century to connect a myriad of small harbours and market towns to the main line and this set is a representation of that period. It includes a small 0-4-0 tank engine, with a selection of wagons that were typical in the time before improved road access led to these services being built in the 1960s. The oval of track, with linseed buildings, adds a degree of realism that can be built upon with the addition of Hornby track accessory packs.
