I came across a post on the Hornby Magazine Facebook site today regarding the tier system - 95 comments and counting, none positive.

Not unusual for Hornby to get negative comments. If they gave everybody a free loco the comments would still be negative. Everything they do is wrong no matter what. That’s why I don't bother with the forum, it’s mind numbing.

Having seen the problem played out in N, pre-Covid, with Hattons no longer stocking Graham Farish, now Hornby are doing the same in OO.

The MANUFACTURERS are obviously properly scared by 'Outlets' manufacturing, if by manufacturing you mean commissioning models from the same factory that makes the stock for the 'MANUFACTURER'.
I am a bit surprised: so one can have a Chinese outlet contract out a product that Hornby just invested huge amounts of capital into?? If I read that correctly, how is that not simple piracy?

Additionally, Hornby has a generous shipping policy to the USA, I don't know about within the UK or to the rest of Europe, but that also must be expensive for them.
I don't think thats what Geoff means here... I think an Outlet would design a new model themselves (or has someone do it for them).
Correct, that's what I was trying to say.
