Hornby re-releases the former Lima GUV and SuperGUV models.
THE LATEST ITEMS from the Italian tooling bank of Lima to make a return, but now in the familiar red Hornby boxes, are the Mk. 1 General Utility Van (GUV) and the rebuilt Railnet ‘spec’ SuperGUV non-passenger carrying coaching stock.
Two liveries make up the initial selection, InterCity Swallow on the standard body with Motorail branding (Cat No. R6354, RRP £15.00) and Rail express systems on the NKA SuperGUV (Cat No. R6355, RRP £15.00). The models are essentially unchanged from their Lima days.
Also new is the Hornby Digital range Select Walkabout (Cat No. R8235, RRP £55.00).
Hornby’s description says that up to eight of these units can be connected to a single Select or Elite Digital controller allowing for independent management of a further eight locomotives, providing power is available. It is not necessary to connect a power pack to the Walkabout when used in this way.
