Hornby Passenger Coach

Hornby Meccano

Hornby Passenger Coach.

With original box. Playworn condition. In O Guage. 

Frank Hornby died in 1936, his son Roland Hornby taking the reins.  The table-top Hornby Dublo trains were introduced in 1938, and after a war-time interruption, resumed production from the mid-1940s.  Their popularity was instant. Hornby 0 gauge production continued post-war, but Meccano Ltd was now focussed on Hornby Dublo and the 0 gauge range was simplified and reduced until phased out in the 1960s.  While Hornby Dublo has a very strong following, with lasting appeal and inbuilt quality, older enthusiasts tend to believe that the best Hornby trains are the 0 gauge models pre-war, built from 1920 until 1939.
