Score 8.0/10
Good points:
Great set to start off your Hornby trainset.
Bought as it was on offer at half price which we felt was a good price BUT we certainly would not have purchased this at it's full supposed retail price.

Good points:
My grandson and son-in-law have great fun playing with it.
Bad points:
Build quality is not what it used to be, reverse button is very stiff almost frightened of breaking it as this is now plastic but used to be metal.

My son loves this and he can now expand it by buying extra track.

The control is very flimsy and we needed to get a replacement due to the soldering coming off the control panel.

Rob,

Score 10.0/10
Good points:
I had to have this set as one of the trucks has "English China Clays" written on the side (my ex-employer). This Hornby set is a great at starter level. Easy to follow instructions, easy to operate and good build quality with some delicate bits... to be expected given that this is a scale model. Against my better judjement this has now inspired me to acquire more Hornby kit!!!
Bad points:
Can become addictive. (see good points)
