The Hornby brand is a truly British icon. Here in one volume is a year by year account of the fortunes, successes and occasional failures of the famous model railway brand. The Hornby name has been carried by three very different model railway systems and has had four owners. It has always stood for quality and, unlike its competitors, has survived for a hundred years by out-witting every toy industry recession that came along. The story is told, one year at a time, by model railway historian, collector and author, Pat Hammond, and contains pictures of many of the models that have been produced over the years, including several which never made it into full production. It also contains breaks at the end of each decade to summarise development and to cover wider issues.
