      Well worth a buy, but save up first

      As the father of a six year old who is obsessed with all things model railway, I've grown used to him spending his pocket money and my hard earned cash on small bits of plastic for his model railway. At £6.95 on Amazon, these 00 gauge Skaledale wagon loads are not for the casual enthusiast: I have since made some almost indentical loads from scratch at a fraction o the price. That said, these are one of the better small Hornby products. They are designed well, are reasonably authentic, and the ore itself has a nice finish that adds to the authenticity. A key benefit is that the loads are transferrable between trucks of the standard size: this makes it very easy to develop layouts from different eras, a key advantage for the model railway enthusiast. As for small children, even my two year old has failed to damage this product. No really small parts mean that the choke hazard is minimal.
