Hornby is a household name and is famous as the UK brand leader in the model railway hobby. The company’s founder was Frank Hornby (1863 - 1936) who applied for a patent in 1901 to protect an invention he called ‘Improvements in Toy or Educational Devices for Children and Young People’.  Nobody then could have imagined how this product would influence the model railway hobby that we know today.

Hobbies now stock a vast selection of Hornby model locomotives, coaches, wagons, tracks, power accessories, scenery and so much more! Shop the full range of this iconic brand at Hobbies.
