  • Hornby Trains-Coke Train

    Hornby is the company that makes Scalextric, Hornby Trains, Airfix models, and Corgi diecasts. I'll be updating this thread and forum with some pix I've done of the trains we (Hornby US) sells here in the US.
    The Coke train we've released this year. It's a basic starter set aimed at Coca-Cola collectors and anyone that might be interested in a Christmas themed train.

    From our website:
    Resplendent in a Coke® Red livery, this officially licensed train set for the Adult Collector offers an almost timeless iconic interpretation of the Coca-Cola® brand, representing the logistics involved in bringing Coke®, by rail, from the factory to the doorstep. Ideal Starter Layout – Perfect For Christmas

    The Hornby Coca-Cola® Christmas Train Set offers the model railway enthusiast a brilliant and unique train set with an engine & wagons featuring the distinctive Coca-Cola® design and includes a good starter layout that can also be enjoyed by those new to the hobby and easily extended later. Santa Enjoys a Coke

    Not only does the Coca-Cola® Christmas Train feature the iconic branding, but also the big man himself, a very jolly looking Santa Claus with rosy red cheeks, a big old smile and of course, a refreshing bottle of everyone’s favourite soft drink, gloriously painted onto the side of the first wagon. Train Around the Christmas Tree

    Christmas is a wonderful time of year and it always brings back those childhood memories and what better way to wake up on Christmas morning and see a Christmas Train Set running around the Christmas tree. With this set you can create a whole new set of magical memories for the whole family to enjoy for years to come.

    1st thing I think of is that movie the coke cola kid were an American marketing expert working for the Coca-Cola Company. He is extremely dedicated to his work and travels the world pushing the product on as many places as he can. When he realizes that there is a part of Australia where absolutely nobody buys Coke, he vows to change that. But then he meets not only McDowell a local entrepreneur who manufactures his own soda, but McDowell's beautiful daughter, Terri and everything changes.
