Model Catalogue Information

1999 Another return to the catalogue, this one not seen in the Hornby range since the 1970s. The Class 29 was a troublesome and relatively short-lived locomotive, which of course makes it doubly interesting to the model collector. Two-tone green livery makes this locomotive one of the 20 Class 29s that were rebuilt with a more powerful engine in 1963 and served exclusively in the Scottish Region until withdrawal of the Class in 1971. Ringfield motor.
2000 The Class 29 engines, built in Glasgow in 1959 by North British Loco Company, were amongst the earlier types of mainline diesels to go into service. These engines spent most of their homeland where many of them were re-engined in later days to improve their performance. Certainly a model to have on a pre-blue period layout. Powered by a ringfield motor.
