The Beatles Yellow Submarine Eurostar Train Set

The Beatles Yellow Submarine Eurostar Train Set

Hornby have released The Beatles Yellow Submarine Eurostar Train Set which is based on the graphics that were applied to the eighteen passenger cars of Eurostar Sets 3005/3006 in 1999. Costing in excess of £100,000, the artwork on the original Eurostar was the result of four months intensive work by Apple Corporation’s Art Director, Fiona Andreanelli, with the finished vinyl artwork taking two weeks to print and a further six days to apply to the train. At over 400 metres in length, each carriage portrayed a different design, telling a different part of the Yellow Submarine story.

The Hornby The Beatles Yellow Submarine Eurostar trains are a very colourful and vibrant re-creation of the coaches and look certain to be collected. Hornby have also released a Eurostar Class 373/1 ‘Yellow Submarine’ Divisible Centre Saloons Coach Pack R40001, and a Eurostar Class 373, Set 3005/3006 ‘Yellow Submarine’ Train Pack R3829 at the same time.

Eurostar’s first use of the Class 373 for an external agency marketing campaign took place in September 1999 when the Sets 3005/3006 were transformed with a vinyl wrap that recreated scenes from The Beatles’ film ‘Yellow Submarine’. This was just one of the promotional events that marked the release of the remixed music track that Autumn. Along with the remastered version of the film that was released in cinemas and on video, the film which had not been available for over a decade included scenes that were edited out of the original, while the album featured new mixes of songs, such as ‘With A Little Help From My Friends’ and ‘Lucy In The Sky With Diamonds’, the first such time a Beatles album had ever been remixed.
