Dapol OO BR E6039 Class 73 Electro-Diesel Early Blue with Small Warning Panels 4D-006-005
British Railways Southern region required a small fleet of electric locomotives to haul special passenger, parcels and goods trains over the sections of the network equiped with third-rail electrification. It was quickly realised some kind of auxiliary power would be required for shunting in sidings where electrification was not practical. The most successful solution was the class 73 electro-diesel, a locomotive delivering up to 1,400bhp on electric power but carrying a 600bhp diesel engine for use away from the 'third rail'.

This model carries the intermediate early blue livery with added small yellow warning panels and corporate era double arrows logos.

Model features
Laser scanned accuracy
See-through etched main bodyside and roof grills
PLUx22 decoder interface.
Sprung buffers
NEM coupler pockets
and a host of other details should make this model a ‘must have’ for the southern modeller.

The motor luggage vans were created to provide luggage capacity for the newly electrified boat train services. Electrically compatible with the Southern regions' EMU trains the luggage vans had the added feature of battery power, allowing the van to move onto the non-electrified dockside sidings to transfer passenger luggage directly to the ship loading conveyors. When running on the 3rd rail these vans can also haul a trailing load, resulting in occasional use to power parcels trains and at least one railtour!

After privatisation of the British railway network, the preserved Deltics became ideal candidates for mainline running due to their strong performance characteristics relative to other preserved diesels. This has included running passenger charters as well as freight services. On 29 November 2017 it was announced via the official Royal Scots Grey website that 55 022 ‘Royal Scots Grey’ and D9016 ‘Gordon Highlander’, plus all spares, had been sold to Locomotive Services Limited, with D9016 recently moving to LSL’s facility in Margate. Built in 1961, locomotive No. D9013 was allocated to the Haymarket shed from new and spent most of its life there other than a brief allocation to Finsbury Park in early 1968 which lasted just four months. The locomotive served with BR until its withdrawal from service in December 1981.

Now fondly remembered by enthusiasts the BR blue period seemed quite drab at the time, as BR finally managed to forge a consistent corporate image. Following the end of steam many diesel classes gained their own dedicated following as the 'non-standard' classes were slated for withdraw. Thousands followed the Westerns, 24s, 25s, 44/45/46 'Peaks' and the mighty Deltics as each class in turn was displaced by newer locomotives, specialist heavy freight engines and the futuristic HST trains.

As ever the only constant on the railway scene of the 1970s and 80s was the change and this group includes the first railfreight grey liveries, a precursor of business sector liveries to come.
