An exclusive Collector Club limited edition to celebrate the coronation of His Majesty King Charles III has been released by Hornby. The model is a Hornby ‘OO’ gauge Class 66 with Triplex Sound installed and finished in a unique commemorative colour scheme.
In its press release, Hornby said: “On Saturday, we will see the coronation of our first new British monarch in 70 years. King Charles III rose to the throne on September 8 2022, and his long-awaited celebration is finally upon us. As a company with a long British heritage that has seen the crowning of three previous monarchs, it is only fitting that we mark the occasion.”
The Class 66 will feature a purple livery with a King Charles III nameplate and the coronation date as the locomotive number. It has Triplex Sound fitted to play God Save the King through the onboard speaker.
The model is limited to 1,000 pieces and is supplied in bespoke packaging. It is only available to Collector Club members with prices set at £129.99. Delivery is expected in September 2023 and pre-orders open now.
