Back by Popular Demand!The Hawthorne Village(r) Coca Cola(r) Train returns with classic and new fun for all! This was one of our most popular sellers in 2004 and 2005 - so popular that the original limited run had been completely unavailable (except from scalpers) for over two years. Hawthorne Village(r) has been able to renegotiate a new licensing agreement that would allow them to reintroduce this charming collection in a new limited edition series. In the meantime, several other Coca Cola-themed village items that we featured on this page as late as 2006 have become unavailable, so this is a reminder that "limited" really does mean "limited," so don't wait too long to make up your mind, especially if you are a Coca Cola(r) collector who also loves Christmas villages.
The Hawthorne Village(r) Coca Cola(r) Train is a subscription train. That means that you buy it in installments, like a magazine. Like many other Hawthorne Village(r) Trains, this train is in O scale, which means that it is 1:48 the size of the “real thing,” about the same scale as most of the better Lionel trains. But it runs on HO gauge track, making it easier to set up and to fit into a fairly small place. These trains are also built using parts from the Bachmann On30 trains, so parts and service will always be available. In addition, track and accessories that are made to go with the Bachmann On30 trains will work with these as well.
Note: Deadlines approaching! Because these are subscription trains, you get the locomotive in the first shipment, a car in the next, a car and the track in the next, and so on, so you should order soon to have enough of a train to enjoy by Christmas. This is a delightful train and a great value, so get your order in early if you don't want to miss out! For details about how a subscription train works, please click here.
This page includes accessories that a Coca Cola(r) or Hawthorne Village(r) collector might be interested in purchasing to add interest to this set. If you don’t have a Christmas village started at all, and you like Coke(r) collectibles, consider one of the Hawthorne Village(r) Coca Cola(r) subscription villages.
