Some customer reviews of Hornby Flying Scotsman Trainset

Most helpful reviews

Andrew, Ashby-de-la-Zouch Dad

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
Track Mat makes it relatively easy to lay the actual track. Make sure you have a 6' x 4' piece of mdf or similar.
Bad points:
Track pins not included - they are a MUST. If planning to add extension packs, do not pin down bits of track you will have to remove to add extension - difficult to sort out afterwards.

Colin, St. Ives Cambs Grandparent

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
The full loco including the beautiful carriages recreates the atmosphere of a bygone age so effectively
Bad points:
Saddened to find that they can only be manufactured in China when jobs are needed much closer to home

Confirmed purchaser Dad

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
Great quality product, good fun. We bought this for our 6 year old and he loves it.
Bad points:
Instructions are not very good (for a novice modeller). We also bought extension C track, but it was not clear how to install link wires; we had to research the internet to find out - a simple instruction would have done the job, but Hornby does not seem to think so.

Confirmed purchaser Parent

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Train set is great. First set for 8 year old son and he loves it. Particularly good to have the mat which sets off the set, and the buffer to allow him to back train into the siding. Well made and looks super.
Bad points:
Sometimes difficult to get train on to the track easily.
