Model railroading is a uniquely rich and absorbing hobby; scale model locomotives can be astonishingly complex and realistic. The grande dame of British model train franchises, Hornby Railways, began in 1920 with an ingenious O gauge clockwork locomotive.

With new incarnations and acquisitions over the years, you can find collectible Hornby locomotives listed under the names Tri-Ang, Airfix, Meccano, and Dublo. In addition to the many highly detailed electric replicas of great British trains, look for live steam-powered model locomotives.
