Available exclusively from the manufacturer's website, a new van decorated in a specially-designed livery affirms its commitment to support the pride movement.
Pride month has begun and to celebrate, Hornby has introduced a new van featuring a specially designed livery, expected to arrive in the next two weeks, with only 500 units having been produced. Available to pre-order from its website, Hornby has said it affirms its continued commitment to supporting the LGBTQ+ community and the pride movement.
Brand Manager, Montana Hoeren commented, "Following the launch of the Hornby Avanti Pride Train, the Class 800 Trainbow and the GBRf Class 66 Pride locomotive, we are pleased to be continuing our support of the LGBTQ+ Community and Pride Month by launching a Pride dedicated Wagon, which is available exclusively on the Hornby website. This vibrant little model would add a burst of colour to any layout and could be perfectly paired with any of the other Hornby Pride models in the range. The livery features a rainbow which has become widely known as a symbol for the LGBTQ+ community and the wording ‘Love Is Love’ to promote that love expressed by an individual or couple is valid regardless of the sexual orientation or gender identity of their lover or partner."
Other items in the manufacturer's range available – or soon to be available – celebrating the pride theme include its Pendolino in Avanti West Coast 'Pride' livery. A number of additional Motor Standard (MS) coaches are available to expand the set too.
Also available to pre-order from the manufacturer or your Hornby stockist is its Class 800 in GWR 'Trainbow' livery.
Meanwhile, for freight enthusiasts, its Class 66 in GBRf Pride livery as 66773 Pride of GB Railfreight is also available to pre-order. For more details on these models, including pricing and availability, see your local stockist. For its online exclusive new van, visit the Hornby website.
