Introducing our latest development..
..the New and exciting A.P.T. set..

The Advanced Passenger Train in its futuristic livery is British Rail's latest step forward in rapid Inter-City travel and Hornby are right up with them. The unique tilting bodies provide stable and comfortable travel for both BR and Hornby passengers even on existing track with its curves and switchbacks. The articulated coaches and long wheel base bogies are all accurately modelled by Hornby and the diecast bogies on the power car ensure optimum performance from the Ringfield motor powered from the track. The driving trailers also have lights which operate in the direction of travel.
