Model Catalogue Information

2002 There were 50 of these Ruston Paxman 12 cylinder powered locomotives built between 1983 and 1987 most of which are used to haul ‘merry-go-round’ trains. The colouring on this model is that of the Railfreight coal sector livery and consequently does not look out of place with a weathered appearance. A Type 7 motor powers the model.
