Hornby have announced on their Official facebook page that their range of new products for 2012 will be told.
A user asked the company via the Hornby Model Railways page; What's new for next year then?
The model trains firm gave a reply later saying; The 2012 range will be announced on the 3rd of January this year.
The news is expected to apply to the Thomas & Friends model railway series which has neither been hinted nor confirmed since.
Originally, the new series of stock was going to have been revealed on Christmas Day according to one user.
This comes just after the release and the largely positive reaction towards their model of Murdoch the Strong Goods Engine.
