The old Hornby one with magnetic wheels on "super six" track could do. Oh how standards have slipped :-)
A Deltic on Hopton Incline, now that would have been a sound never to be forgotten.
Tri-ang/Hornby never made a 'Deltic'.

Don't take me to literally mate, by the way, I've very nearly saved for that purchase we discussed - better late than never!

Hornby-Dublo did, but that didn't have "Magnadhesion", which was a Tri-ang invention

Indeed and that's what initially confused me.
Gosh that Dublo 'Deltic' was an abortion - worse than the original Lima effort for scale.
Which explains why Hattons had then for sale, years after the Hornby factory closed. Sorry I think I mean the Co-Bo. Not so sure why that had RH points, but never any left ones. ;-) Then there was the 110 Volt transformers. ;-P
Yes, thank god Hornby didn't waste time and money reviving that awful Lima model.... :)

Indeedy. That would have been a hugely rash waste of money.
