Welcome to the homepage of the Dutch Hornby Railway Collectors Association. This site is dedicated to the Dutch HRCA and vintage Hornby Trains in general. It is maintained by Peter Zwakhals, the Club Secretary, Paul Vreede and Hans van Dissel.
The Dutch HRCA section contains a short history of the Dutch HRCA, where the club and its goals are introduced. Also included are pictures of the members personal collections.
The meeting reports page contains reports (and pictures) of past meetings. These meetings may be centred around a relevant special event or a visit to one of our members' homes.
The site has a list of relevant links of Hornby interest, divided into various categories for your convenience. These not only include sites about Hornby O-gauge, but also those about Hornby Dublo and HRCA-related organisations.
If you want to know what your vintage O-gauge locomotive is worth these days? The Price guide to Hornby O-gauge locomotives is generated from a database containing thousands of prices from auction results, eBay sales, dealer lists and prices asked at sales shows.
Although this site is dedicated to Hornby products and the Dutch HRCA, most of its members have a wider-ranging interest in vintage model trains and are TCS-members too. Have a look at the Biller Bahn page, the Leeds Model Company pages or a vintage train display we had at the Haarlem Station Festival.
The internet-based Hornby discussion group is for anyone interested in vintage Hornby trains, both O-gauge and Dublo, as well as related topics. It does however not cover the current products made by Hornby Railways of Great Britain. Use this link to join the group (it's free!) and get in touch with over 500 Hornby-minded enthusiasts worldwide. Founders and moderators are Mark Nolan and Peter Zwakhals. For collectors with a wider ranging interest, there is a similar group for the Train Collectors Society (TCS). Click here to join that group. You could also join the O Scale Tinplate Forum.
