Hornby Hobbies is continuing its 100th anniversary celebration with a #Hornby100 social media takeover filled with new product announcements.
Corgi’s die-cast bus is the latest in a full range of commemorative products that honor the legacy established with the debut of Frank Hornby’s first model train in 1920. The limited-edition products will celebrate each decade over the last century and will be shipped in vintage style packaging to reflect the era. Items will include tinplate locomotives, die-cast vehicles, complete train sets, gold-plated locomotives, and more.
The livery on the Bristol Lodekka carries many of the brand names and logos synonymous with Hornby throughout the last 100 years, with the destination board displaying either Binns Road No. 20 or Westwood No. 64 denoting the year that Lines Bros acquired Hornby.
Hornby’s anniversary product range can be found at specialty retailers and on the official site. Additional products will be revealed throughout July across the company’s social networks.
