Explore the luxury side of rail travel with the Gloucester City Pullman locomotive and track pack (R1177). This massive Hornby box set is headed by the British Rail Class 8 'Duke of Gloucester' locomotive which is decked out in in classic BR green livery. It tows behind it a trio of Pullman luxury rail cars, including two parlour carriages and a brake car, making it a truly stylish train to behold.The set includes a 3rd radius starter oval layout along with Hornby Track Pack A, giving you a looping train track that splits at a point leading to a buffer stop. The included Hornby Train Controller is simple to use and gives you full control over the locomotive as it rolls around the rails. The Gloucester City Pullman acts as a perfect starter set, ready to expand with further track packs or can even be linked up to an existing Hornby set.

...The last shall be first
It's not often that I'll begin a review of a novel by talking about the book's ending, but in the case of The Subtle Knife, the middle volume of Philip Pullman's extremely fine His Dark Materials fantasy trilogy, I'm going to make an exception. No, don't worry, I'm not going to give away the details of precisely what happens... but what I will say is that in...
Advantages: Brilliant end to a brilliant trilogy. Short chapters: ideal stopping places Disadvantages: Much longer than the others. Very descriptive in the middle.
...A little short of amonth ago, I woke up on Christmas morning and opened my presents. One of these was Philip Pullman's 'His Dark Materials' trilogy. I had eagerly awaited these (guessing I would get them for Christmas) and tucked into them immediately.
