A quick look through the 2004 Hornby Trade Order Forms suggest the following are the only *totally new* items scheduled for this year. It is of course perfectly feasible that additional items will be announced at the forthcoming International Toy & Hobby Fair.

There are of course other items described as *new*, but they all appear to be simple reliveries. Weathered coaches seem to be this years *latest fad* and seem to completely outnumber unweathered models apart from the new Gresleys.
I assume the A4s, A3s & the A1 are now to be loco drive, but I do not have confirmation of that.
Best wishes, John Turner,53A Models, Hull, UK.
