The next step in model railways – Live Steam! Yes, a real steam powered engine in OO gauge – incredible engineering from Hornby. Unfortunately the line has been discontinued and the stock was all sold a little while ago. However the great guys at 2ktechnologies received a little extra stock that was found in the factory and offered a great price on these last chance packages and I snapped one up.

I am hoping to get it steamed up this weekend and if I manage I will post a video to show how these models work. Until then check out these shots of the set – a real collectors item!
