Details

Comes in kit form & requires painting. Requires Farish class 20 chassis or Class 25 block and class

Class 44 - these 10 locos were the last of the pilot scheme diesels to be ordered and entered service in 1959. At the time they were the heaviest and most powerful diesel on British Railways. They were named after mountain peaks in England and Wales. They were used for a short time on Class 1 passenger duties but in 1962/3 with the introduction of the class 45's they had their steam heating boilers removed and were allocated to freight duties. Withdrawn between 1976-1980.
Class 45 - a total of 127 were built and during the mid 1960's 25 received names. They saw service throughout the system on both passenger abd freight duties.
Class 46 - the last of the Peaks. A total of 56 were built differing from the earlier locos by utilising alternative electrical equipment. These too were seen throughout the system, being withdrawn between 1977 and 1984.

There were many variations within and between classes and more detailed information can be found in the instructions. The kit allows a number of different'nose ends' to be built.

The kit requires a Graham Farish chassis to complete it. When first tooled the class 40 model had not been developed and the kit was designed to use the class 20 chassis. This is modified by using bogie side frame extensions (supplied in the kit) which in turn hold Graham Farish coach wheels (not included) to provide prototypical appearance. The model in th phot is made this way.

An alternative option is to use a class 25 chassis block and class 40 bogies and more information on this method can be found in the kit instructions.
