Hornby’s range of TT:120 scale passenger rolling stock continues to develop with the addition of essential HST Mk3 carriages. Decorated in the classic British Rail InterCity blue and grey livery of the 1970s and 1980s, the new Mk3 range is a must for diesel-era modellers.

The British Rail Mk3 formed a new generation of carriage design that revolutionized train travel in the UK and remains in service to this day. Delivered in HST (Mk3) and loco-hauled (Mk3a) variants, the new carriages included advanced systems for suspension, braking and air conditioning. Entering into service in 1975, the Mk3s are synonymous with the ground breaking Class 43 HSTs which operated in sets of between six and nine Mk3s.

The all-new Hornby TT:120 Mk3 range features the Restaurant Buffet (TRUB) type as E41043 in the original blue and grey InterCity scheme that adorned HSTs from 1976 to the late 1980s. Accurately modelled with small Buffet windows, the new Mk3 TRUB includes a unique tooling and interior detail for the kitchen, decorated for an HST on the East Coast Mainline (ECML).

Intended to run with Hornby’s impressive class 43 HST power cars in blue and grey (TT3021M/TT3021TXSM), only one TRUB is required in many prototypical HST InterCity 125 rakes, with up to nine Mk3s. With few trains as iconic as the HST, replicating a full era 7 ECML set is straightforward and a must for any TT:120 scale model railway.

Product highlights include:

  • British Rail InterCity Mk3 TRUB Restaurant Buffet E40307 in blue and grey

  • Kinematic couplings for reliable running

  • Fine detail and accurate printed decoration

  • One TRUB Buffet required in many HST sets

A vital addition to any TT:120 layout of the 1970s and 1980s (era 7)
