Hornby R4397 New MkIII DVT Virgin Trains (OO Gauge)

Its been a while since I have bought anything in OO gauge as I have recently been working on my N gauge layout, but this new Hornby MkIII DVT (Driving Van Trailer) in Virgin Trains was too good to miss! The model cost me £45 from Trains4U in Peterborough where some critics say the price might be a tad steep, but this is a super detailed model and it features head and tail lights as well as a cab light when the train is working in “push” mode. The fleetnumber is 82150 and the model also has opening cab doors as well. I have used my Hornby Class 60 which is my beast 60008 in EWS livery and 4 MkIII carriages for the test rake which I have rented Nathan’s YMR layout to test the “Dreamliner” Express train on. Unfortunately when the train was tested in push mode, it derailed three times. But this was due to the NEM couplers on the last two carriages towards the locomotive sliding under each other and nothing to do with the DVT being at fault at all. It is a very well made OO gauge model from Hornby and I intend getting the ONE anglia DVT as my next purchase in OO gauge. Comments & Ratings Welcome!
