Following recent poor running by our Wrenn Cardiff Castle, a decision was made to acquire a replacement Castle for semi-fast duties between Marylebone and Wolverhampton Low-Level.
Accordingly, a new Hornby Penrice Castle was acquired from Woodpecker Model Railways. Since being pressed into service, the locomotive has performed its role magnificently with both smooth operation and good adhesion.

The rolling stock update is produced by BRED and looks at changes and repairs of notable interest to the Banbury Connections fleet. Some past projects can be found under the resources section of the website. If you are curious about the performance of a particular locomotive feel free to contact us and I will endeavour to provide a fair assessment of any models we own.
