Welcome to the forum page on my HO/OO Gauge Layout Project: 'Great British Carlow', a British spin-off layout based on Carlow Railway Station in Ireland, set on the London Midland Region of British Railways during the last years of steam from 1955 when the Modernisation Plan was published to the end of steam in 1968. Keep up to date on progress of this layout here, as well as on the workbench session of this forum.

As you may know, Hornby announced doing an OO Gauge BR Standard Class 6 'Clan' Pacific model in 2009, and between that and 2010, they made three Clan models, which are: R2846/X BR Standard Class 6 Clan 72000 'Clan Buchanan' in BR Lined Green Early Emblem R2847/X BR Standard Class 6 Clan 72008 'Clan Macleod' in BR Lined Green Late Crest R2925/X BR Standard Class 6 Clan 72005 'Clan Macgregor' in BR Lined Green Late Crest But, while searching through the Hattons Model Railway a few weeks back I came across this: http://www.hattons.co.uk/34571/Hornby_R2969_Clan_Class_4_6_2_72002_Clan_Campbell_BR_will_feature_as_part_of_the_Hornby_2011_/StockDetail.aspx It turns out Hornby was going to make a fourth Clan model: 72002 'Clan Campbell' in BR Lined Green Late Crest! It's product description from Hattons is, and I quote: "This item was announced in the Hornby Collectors club magazine in August 2010. The item was then planned to be part of the 2011 range but was not amongst the items announced on December 25th 2010." Took me by surprise!
