Join The One:One Collection on its most exciting journey yet, as we bring some of the most iconic and historically important UK railway locomotives and rolling stock to their new home on the Hornby site in Margate, Kent.
In The One:One Collection, the stars of the show aren’t scale models, but the real thing – iconic locomotives, rolling stock, maintenance vehicles and memorabilia – 1:1 scale and up close. The collection’s new home isn’t yet fully open to the public, but now you can get on board, follow its progress, and learn about opportunities to be among the first to see the collection as it arrives.
Get an exclusive first look at The One:One Collection in its new home. To celebrate the return to its original Margate factory after a short absence, Hornby is throwing open its doors for an open weekend on 17/18 August 2019. As well as the refurbished Hornby Visitor Centre and model railway exhibits, you’ll get the chance to see the first on-site exhibits including the ‘Bittern’, a ‘Black Five’ and the rare ‘Wickham Trolley’.
