The model train set is the archetypal toy, and the archetypal British model rail train is a Hornby. Hornby: The Official Illustrated History is the first full pictorial account of the rise and development of the three main model railway systems that have borne the famous Hornby name over the last 82 years. From the simple toy trains of the 1920s to the super-detailed models of the 21st century, the Hornby story is richly enhanced with historic material and color photos of the trains that made Hornby the most famous name in British model railways.

Tells the story of Hornby railways from the inception of the Gauge O system as an extension of the mighty Meccano empire, through the market dominance of the famous Hornby-Dublo range, to its take-over by Tri-ang and the re-emergence of the Hornby name, once again associated with the market leader in model railways.
