Corgi launch limited edition truck set

Published on: 2nd March 2012

To commemorate the death of haulage magnate Edward Stobart, Corgi will be launching a limited edition truck set.

The set comprises of two pieces, featuring detailed die-cast models of the Scania 4 Series with Curtainside Trailer, the Scania 111 ‘Julia’ and the Edward Stobart Story – a booklet featuring the story of Eddie Stobart Ltd.

Edward, who sadly passed away on 31st March 2011, opened his first depot starting with just eight trucks and twelve employees. Over time, Edward grew the business into the massive expansion with memorable trucks such as the Scania 4 Series modelled in this commemorative set that marks the peak of his career.

The Eddie Stobart die-cast models continue to be a hugely popular range with Corgi selling over 25,000 Eddie Stobart models on average per year.
