In this , the final volume in the series, New Cavendish traces the product, now called Hornby Railways, under DCM ownership from 1972 until their collapse in the early 1980s. It takes the reader through the highly productive years of the 1980s and 1990s to the inevitable outsourcing in the Far East. Over 600 locomotive variations were produced during this time as well as numerous coaches, wagons, buildings, etc., all of which are illustrated in this book. The final chapter includes Thomas the Tank Engine, Hornby Minitrix and many others products that were produced or sold alongside Hornby Railways. The first two books in this Rovex story trilogy are Tri-Ang Railways Volume 1 which covers the story from 1950 to 1965, and Tri-Ang Hornby Volume 2 , 1965 to 1971.
