October saw Hornby display decorated samples of its upcoming OO-gauge Class 87 at exhibitions, the company also releasing photos for those unable to attend these events.
As expected, these show No. 87035 Robert Burns in BR blue with an AEI cross-arm pantograph fitted while No. 87010 King Arthur carries InterCity Swallow with a Brecknell Willis pantograph in place.
The manufacturer has also confirmed that both pantographs are plastic and poseable only, there being no springing or linkages to make them functional.
Both models are expected to be released in February and currently have a RRP of £169.99. www.hornby.com
