A Hornby Hobbies pop-up shop has opened at London St Pancras International train station, selling Scalextric, Airfix, Corgi and more until Christmas.

Among the products on offer is a Coca-Cola Christmas Hornby train set and the classic famous Flying Scotsman train set, along with the fitting Eurostar train set for international travellers passing through.

Corgi will be offering a range of film and TV die-cast models, from British classics such as the London bus to The Beatles Yellow Submarine and the James Bond Aston Martin DB5. The die-cast Harry Potter Hogwarts Express will also be on display, aptly across the road from the station which famously homes Platform 9 ¾.


Scalextric will be offering a range of sets and cars from Looney Tunes, Wacky Races and Justice League. There will also by a new My First Looney Tunes set for the pre-school racer, with the option of racing as Bugs Bunny or Daffy Duck.

Hornby’s range of simple, snap together Airfix Quick Build models suitable as an introduction to modelling for younger kids will also be available. These models require no glue or paint, and the flower power vehicles include a cool surfin’ sticker sheet.

The pop-up shop will be open seven days a week, from 7am through to 9pm, and can be found near Eurostar Departures.
