Hornby ‘Orient Express’ Deluxe Set R1038

Out of stock

This stunning Hornby R1038 ‘Orient Express’ Deluxe Set dates from 2005 and comes from a single-owner collection.

The original owner did not have a model railway layout and only purchased sets for display, so the set was unused until we tested the loco on a track prior to listing it.

The set is complete and, apart from some fading to the cardboard outer sleeve of the box, in mint condition.

The loco has been tested and runs smoothly in both directions. The set has been in storage for some years, so we would advise lubricating the loco before it is regularly used.

The set features the Merchant Navy Class locomotive ‘United States Lines’, three highly detailed ‘Orient Express’ coaches, track, controller and all accessories pictured.

The set comes withthe original 3-drawer box which is in excellent condition. The outer cardboard picture sleeve has minor storage wear and is faded in places – see photos.

All photos are of the actual set we have for sale.

Scale: OO gauge


  • Contents: ‘As new’ (Grade: 10/10)
  • Red 3-drawer box: Very Near Mint (Grade: 9.5/10)
  • Outer picture sleeve: Good with some fading/wear (Grade: 6/10
