With more than 100 years since the golden age of rail travel, Hornby, a UK toy and collectible company, is releasing a line of model trains designed after the Flying Scotsman, which first left the station on Feb. 24, 1923. 

The line features a Flying Scotsman train set complete with rails, three coaches, a remote control, and more, but it also features six limited-edition models from different eras of the Flying Scotsman. The collection features models from 1923, 1924, 1946, 1963, 1969, and 2016. Each model comes in a bespoke box and features a medallion featuring the Flying Scotsman centenary logo, operator, running number, year of operation, and a numbered commemorative certificate. The six replicas are currently available for preorder and the Flying Scotsman Train Set is available now.
