New Product Development

1020mm (3' 4") Disc Diesel Wheel
This wheel is suitable for the Class 43 (253/254) HST. As shown in the photo, we had looked at having brake discs on both the front and back of the wheels. However, due to the thickness of the material used to produce the brake discs. The back set, stand out from the back tyre face by around 0.010" (0.25mm). We did try increasing the recess in the back of the wheel but this just destabilised the wheel, so we are currenly thinking that only the front ones should be fitted. If there is enough interest in them, we hope to have these available in the new year as time allows for development work to be completed.

We are also looking at a conversion for the latest version of the Hornby HST.


Prototype Conversion for Latest Hornby HST

Currently the conversion has only been produced in 18.83. EM will be looked at if interest is shown for such a conversion.
