And that really is only the half of it. "The smartest looking and smoothest running clockwork train you ever saw; delightful to handle and to watch as it dashes busily round its track" (May-June 1921 Meccano Magazine). As well as being fun, and a sound investment, a Peppercorn collection has unlimited educational potential for young and enquiring minds of all ages.
The first O Gauge Hornby Trains were introduced in 1920 and were the pioneers of an unrivalled series of toy train products, which enabled Hornby to offer 'everything for the complete model railway'. Production ceased in the early 1960s and many pieces are now extremely rare and valuable. As many items were produced in small batches there is great potential for the value of your collection to grow and hence represent a sound investment as well as being great fun.
