Hornby Announcement

Tennents Trains Hornby Announcement: 

We are no longer allowed to sell the Hornby brand of products and this will take effect immediately. Our efforts throughout 2019 to supply Hornby models and other model railway accessories at reasonable and competitive prices have been ended because we have refused to comply with their requirement to sell at a maximum 10% discount on all new releases. We believe that this step Hornby have taken is to the deteriment of both the consumer, who have seen a hidden 5% price rise needlessly added to the already expensive model, and the retailer, whose cashflow can be seriously affected by any delay to the purchase of new models with customers increasingly waiting for the price to drop. The Hornby decision means that we will no longer be able to take orders for any new models as they are announced by Hornby, including those models already announced and those models already available for sale.

We do have a number of models still in stock and these products will continue to be offered for sale in the shop and on this website but once they're gone, they're gone! You may even be lucky enough to grab yourself a bargain.

However, this announcement does not affect any other aspect of our business and the shop and website remains open for business selling all the other brands that we are proudly associated with.

We thank you for your continued support and custom and look forward to serving you throughout 2020 and beyond.
