Hornby Railway Collectors' Association of South Africa

What is the HRCASA

The Hornby Railway Collectors' Association of South Africa was founded to achieve the following objectives:

  • To stimulate interest in Hornby railway products, both 0 gauge and 00 gauge, as manufactured by Meccano Ltd up to the year 1973, hereinafter referred to as “Hornby Trains”
  • To bring together collectors and operators and others who have an interest in Hornby Trains, and to encourage the exchange of information and views on such Hornby Trains, thus increasing the interest and knowledge of members
  • To publish and circulate a regular Newsletter containing information of interest to members
  • To encourage members to undertake repairs and restorations or to produce spare and replacement parts
  • To support or organise any other activity which in the opinion of the Committee is likely to further any of the above objectives

NOT involve itself with Hornby trains that were not made in Liverpool or Paris, nor with other modern makes of model railways.

There are separate organisations and groups that support such interests.  Visit our links page for more information.



As of May 2019 it is also possible to follow some of the groups activities via the Facebook group which can be found under Hornby Railway Collectors' Association of South Africa

The show was an awesome opportunity for members to meet up and run trains. Thanks to all those who assisted with the operation of the layout.


On the weekend of the 6th & 7th of October 2018 the HRCASA will be operating a layout at The Great Model Train Expo. Further details can be found via the following link The Great Model Train Expo

Members will be operating both Dublo and O Gauge layouts and you are welcome to bring items to run.
