Product Description

Hornby R1151 Caledonian Belle OO Gauge Electric Train Set

R1151 Caledonian Belle artwork
Remembering the tranquil times of British rail

The halcyon days of British railways were at their best when numerous small branch lines criss-crossed the British countryside, linking the small towns to the outside world. This Caledonian Belle set emulates those small local trains with the smart 0-4-0 locomotive which makes easy work of hauling the four-wheel coach and wagon around the oval of track included in the set.

Box contents
Caledonian Belle

The train set includes the Caledonian Railways 0-4-0 locomotive, a four-wheel coach, and an open wagon in Hornby's usual standards of exacting detail. The train is operated using the R8250 Train Controller included.

R8250-Train-Controller
1600 x 1180 mm TrakMat
R1151 set track

The track circuit sits easily on the 1600 x 1180 mm MidiMat, and by adding Hornby track and accessory packs can soon be developed into a very effective model railway layout. Extend your set in easy steps by adding track packs and TrakMat accessory packs all the way to the full layout pictured on your MidiMat.

Why choose a Hornby analogue train set?

Hornby's analogue sets represent the classic origins of Hornby's world famous model trains. In addition to track, a controller, and an exquisitely detailed locomotive with carriages, every Hornby set includes a Midimat (a pictorial bird's eye view of a fully scenic layout) providing the new set owner the opportunity of seeing how, by the addition of Hornby track and building packs, a superb layout can be created.

Box Contains

1 x Caledonian 0-4-0 locomotive
1 x 4-wheel coach
1 x Open wagon
1 x 3rd radius starter oval track
1 x P9200 transformer
1 x R8250 train controller
1 x R8206 power track
1 x Hornby MidiMat (1600 x 1180 mm)

Everything you need to get started bought seperately this set would be double the price - all you need is two DIY paste tables a room to put them in and a big kid to set up and a little kid if he is lucky to watch and join ion a little bit

By Schnuggles TOP 1000 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on 16 Sept. 2014
At £50 this is a bargain and a really good set to start off a model train hobby. My 5 year old was desperate to have his own proper train set and I was concerned over getting one of the >£100 sets so this fit the bill. The track mat is a great idea and didn't take long to assemble it all.

My only problem was with the controller. Everytime there was a derailment, the controller would stop working for about 1 minute, one of it's safety features. I gave up with it in the end and got a better one off the Internet.

This product was really good to start off with.
Unfortunately the motor carriage broke pretty quickly.
To solve: take the blue roof off and charge a screw driver with static.
Take dust off the motor by hand and then remove it with the screwdriver.
After this has been great although for £50 you can get the lakelander with extra track and a much better motor carriage!
Overall Good but better hornby out there...

The look on my son's face said it all. This is perfect for any budding modeller. Will be putting the track on to a slotted board so it's quicker and easier to set up. My son's jaw hit the floor when he opened this on his 5th birthday last week. Excellent quality build too.

Bought this for my 4 year old train enthusiast..
He loves it.. It is a bit tricky to put on the track but once it's on it's perfect.
No good for a heavy handed child but as long as they are quite careful it's great.
He has used it every day since Christmas

I bought this as a Christmas present for my husband, and it has been a great success. We have both enjoyed playing with it, and are currently building the layout together too.

One thing I would suggest is that rather than buy the plastic buildings and scenery, take a look around and either get yourself some of the excellent ready-cut card kits available for stations and other buildings, or take a look online and download some to print out and make up. You will be able to add something different to your layout.

There is sufficient track here for a simple oval layout with a siding, although the image on the plastic mat provided does not quite fit the track once you lay it out, which I feel does detract from the look of the thing. However, the mat is really there only to give you an idea so I recommend you rapidly dispense with it and build your own layout as soon as possible. If you are lucky enough to be able to find a good model railway shop within reasonable travelling distance I also recommend a trip there for advice.

All in all an excellent starter set which will enable you to have fun from the word go. Well worth the price!
