Owing much to the GWR Star the C.B Collett designed Castle Class locomotives first started to leave the Swindon Works in 1924. 'Caerphilly Castle', the first of the Class first appeared at the Empire Exhibition in the same year. These powerful 4-6-0 locomotives were renowned for hauling heavy trains at high speeds and remained on top link express duties until they were replaced by diesels in the early 1960s. On June 8, 1932 No. 5000 covered the 77 miles from Swindon to London in 56 minutes with 39 miles of the run being made at 90 mph which was quite an achievement at the time. So successful was the design of these locomotives that they continued to be built until 1950. All Hornby locomotives, rolling stock, track system, buildings and accessories are superbly detailed and made from high quality durable materials ensuring realistic, aesthetically pleasing and most important of all long durability. You can run Hornby trains and rolling stock on the Hornby track system and also other 00 gauge model railway trains such as Bachmann and Peco and quite happily any HO gauge railway locomotives and rolling stock such as Piko, Marklin, Roco, Brawa, Trix / Minitrix and Fleischmann.
