The Hornby railway is scheduled to close on September 16.
In a sign of the increasing popularity of the Hornbys brand of trains, the Hornbillies have already taken to the airwaves to promote their trains.
Hornbillys spokesperson, Giovanni Scarpati, told Tuttosport.com: “I cannot confirm that the train will be running on September 18 but I can confirm that Hornbillie trains are on the market now and will be back on the air next week.”
The Hornbillias’ announcement comes just over two weeks after the Hornbills announced a 10-day “summer of joy” promotion with the same theme.
The first hornbill train will arrive at the Hornbarren station in Hornby on September 4, and Hornbilly riders will have the opportunity to buy a ticket in advance for a free hornbill.
For the second hornbill, the company is currently promoting a train with a similar theme, with a special discount available for customers who book the train in advance.
Hornbilly trains are also on the rise in Europe, with sales reaching over 1 million in France alone last year, according to Eurotunnel.
“Our Hornbillian trains are unique in that they offer a unique journey experience that makes them ideal for those who are looking for a relaxing train ride,” Scarpato said.
There is also a new hornbill service that will depart from the Hornhouse station in Newbridge on September 5, and will run between London and Manchester.
