Green Era Diesel Locos

Diesel and electric locomotives and units from the steam to diesel transition. Eras 5-6.
A detailed model of the BR class 05 0-6-0 diesle shunting locomotives built by the Hunslet Engine Company using the 204bhp Gardner 8L3 engine as fitted to the BR-built class 03 and similar Drewery class 04 diesel shunters. Using a reliable engine and gearbox combination and similar to the standard 204bhp shunters the Hunslet engines survived the clear-out of generally poor designs, but as a small class were withdrawn as shunting requirements reduced.

When the Western region began ordering diesel-hydraulic locomotives they had the German V200 design in mind and the Swindon-designed D800 Warship class bears a close resembelence to the German locomotives. Following a policy of dual-sourcing BR ordered a batch of these D800 class locomotives from North British in Glasgow. D833-D865 were built at NBL, fitted with MAN engines and Voith transmissions, in place of the Maybach-Mekydro combination of the Swindon built locomotives.

To separate the two types of D800 Warships for TOPS the Swindon Maybach engined units were given class 42, while the North British MAN engined locomotives were placed into class 43. Neither type survived long enough to receive TOPS numbering.

This model recreates the detail differences, particularly in the placement of roof ports, created by the adaption of the Warship bodyshell to accomodate the different engine type. The first time the NBL warships have been accurately modelled.

Hornby OO BR E5001 Class 71 Southern Region Bo-Bo Electric Locomotive BR Green R3373
Hornby OO R3373 BR Class 71 E5001 BR Green

British Railways class 71 locomotives were built to provide electric locomotives for goods and non-electric (eg parcels) services across the third rail electrified areas of the former Southern Railway. Power was collected from the third rail aith an auxiliary pantograph fitted for use in yards, where the third  rail would be a hazard for shunting staff and a flywheel booster set was fitted to provide power while negotiating gaps in the third rail.
While the cass 71s were a successful design a pure-electric locomotive is restricted to routes with electric power available. A new design of electric locomotive (later class 73) equiped with a low-power auxiliary diesel engine provided a far more flexible locomotive able to work away from the third rail for extended periods. The class 71s locomotives were withdrawn from service en-bloc at the end of 1977. One example, E5001, was retained for presevation as part of the national collection.

Built in 1936 with the same body profiling as the passenger cars but without side windows and double luggage van doors at each end in addition to the centre door the car was intended for express parcels service. Number 17 ran until 1956 when new British Railways parcels single car DMU cars were entering service.
Currently at engineering prototype, production planned for Q2 2019.

When British Railways decided on a 4-character headcode system the diesel locomotive designs being built needed to be revised to accomodate the 4-character display instead of the steam-era disc headcode array. The Derby type 2 design, later class 24, was equiped with a headcode box fitted into the roof end dome of the cab roof. The design revision included other internal equipment changes, creating the first sub-class of 24/1. This style of cab end was continued when the more powerful engine was fitted, creating class 25, but later revised with side fairings over roof-mounted air horns for the 25/1 and subsequent 25s.
This version of the 24 has not been produced previously and provides a further visual variant of the popular and useful Derby type 2.

Diesel locomotives first appeared on shunting duties in the 1930s and the 300/350bhp English Electric engine in a solidly constructed outside framed 0-6-0 design locomotive quickly proved to be the most versatile for a general purpose shunting engine.

British Railways combined the experience of the four railway companies, producing this sturdy heavy shunting engine, later known as class 08, many of these locomotives are still serving Britains railways today.

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'.

The Met-Cam class 101 diesel multiple units were among the most successful and long lived designs of the first generation types. The design was distinctivly rounded, quite unlike the body profile used by other builders, and the class could be seen all over the BR network in several different formations.

This is a new and highly detailed model, matching the standards set by the Bachmann 105 and 108 units in recent years. One truck is driven using a motor mostly hidden within the guards' office at the inner end of the motor car, with sufficient power to allow an extra car to be hauled when necessary.

This model will be finished in the BR DMU green livery with the stylish speed whisker markings on the cab fronts.

The Derby Lightweight units were among the first types of diesel multiple unit to enter widespread service on British Railways in the 1950s. Making full use of the modern aluminium materials to create a lightweight coach body the units could easily be propelled by compact but low-powered diesel engines being produced for�buses. The design was a classic in styling, although more familiar today the use of all-round glazing, open-plan seating and the ability to see through the drivers' cabins were novel features.

Luckily, due to use by the engineering and research sections of BR, one of these units has survived, revealing the remarkably innovative construction and use of materials.

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!
