Hornby Tornado Express Train Set

The opulence and elegance of Pullman travel between the two World Wars of the last century was at that time mainly reserved for the more well off. However these days with the development of character travel, being able to relive those halcyon days of travel is available for all especially when the service is being pulled by one of the most famous steam locomotives of modern times ‘Tornado’. 

Of all the characters that ‘Tornado’ hauls, it can be argued that those trains made up of Pullman Cars must be one of the most desirable and elegant available. This set seeks to capture some of the elegance and desirability of those Pullman trains. 

Not only does this set contain ‘Tornado’ and two Pullman Cars, but an oval of track with siding, together with a train controller and wall mounted transformer. 

With the addition of Hornby track and building packs the layout included in this set can soon become a fascinating model railway.
