Stephen OO - Test Video

Also long awaited is the completed model of Stephen from 'King of the Railway'.



Stephen was made using a Tri-ang Hornby 'Rocket' with a dapol tender kit, the model was thoroughly cleaned, and given odd parts from the Take 'n' Play Stephen, it runs really well, and i have recently bought a second rocket to make another version of him with his black funnel before it got broken off during the mine scene. :)

Porter & Rosie OO - Test Clips!

Long awaited videos of Porter and Rosie in OO are finally here!



Porter was made using a Rivarossi OO/HO model. Rosie was built from scratch and runs on a Hornby 'Toby' 0-6-0 chassis with motion from a Bachmann Gordon.

Hornby 2015 range reveals Den prototype!



Hornby's 2015 product range has recently revealed that a second version of the 0-4-0 'Sentinel' will include motion rod drive, something that was only ever available as a plastic kit from Knightwing using a Branchlines chassis kit. The new model looks superb, and although the model will not be out till next year, it now opens up some new opportunities for fans to make their own models of Thomas & Friends character, Den.

Den who was recently seen in the Thomas and Friends Television Series, is based on the sentinel 0-4-0 rod drive locomotive like the picture above, he works at the Diesel works with his friend Dart, who was made by Hornby two years ago.

Sadly there is no new Thomas & Friends characters in the 2015 lineup, but, there could well be a return of the Hornby Thomas range around 2016/17 depending on the current state of Hornby's future, it was announced recently that they were leaving Margate Works in Kent to move to new premises, but production of new products would still continue nonetheless!

Blog Update - 20/12/14

Greetings friends and visitors.

We apologize for so many updates lacking on this blog, the last year has been very stressful in everyday life that we've not had much time to get online to do any updating, but as we move towards 2015, the blog will be fully updated and hopefully will get back on track from January with new product news, updates and community happenings.

We hope you all have a very Merry Christmas, and hope that it's a good one from all of use here at the World of Thomas Modelling. :)
