“ Brand: Hornby / Train Yard: Equipment „
Only fans of model railways could understand how a smalll piece of grey plastic could cost nearly £4.00: true enthusiasts like my five-year old son don't see this as a problem. Detail, authenticity and suitability for a layout are what matters, and this Hornby product does not disappoint.
Clearly, it is not the most exciting of features on a layout and is never going to take the place of a centrepiece like a station or a shed. That said, 'God is in the details' and this product adds a useful, if small, feature to layouts whatever the theme.
A word of warning though: as with a lot of small parts on model railways, they are susceptible to being misused by younger children. My youngest son (nearly two) likes to put things like this in his mouth, so parents of young children should consider fixing these small features to their layouts. This also prevents products from going missing, a big risk when children and model railways are put together.
