Hornby 2023 Diesel & Electric Locomotives

Models announced for 2023 and future production.
Following the FirstGroup's decision to buyout their partner's shares in Great Western Holdings, a decision was made to rebrand the Great Western Trains HST units to First Great Western (FGW). Visually this change involved the fitting of a new vinyl gold strip and colour fading as well as fitting new FGW logos.

With the introduction of the new Class 800 and 802 IEP units on the Great Western Mainline GWR cascaded the remaining IC125 sets to rural routes shortening them to 4 passenger coach 'Castle' sets. This HST 'Castle' Train Pack contains two particular power cars.

Power Car 43004 entered service in September 1976 and was one of the prototypes for the Brush MTU engine upgrade, this occurring between September 2004 and June 2005. As a result, it did not receive a full overhaul as other members of the Class did, and so returned to Brush to receive Cab upgrades in November 2007. Its counterpart, 43155 entered service in January 1981 and was overhauled by Brush between April and October 2006.

The British Rail Class 43 (HST) is the TOPS classification used for the InterCity 125 High Speed Train (formerly Classes 253 and 254) power cars, built by British Rail Engineering Limited from 1975 to 1982, and in service in the UK since 1976.

In April 2021 RailAdventure signed a new partnership deal with Hanson & Hall Rail Services, while at the same time obtaining eight Class 43 locomotives, which will operate back to back to operate domestic services.

RailAdventure, who are based in Munich, have been involved in delivering new trains from Europe to the UK, for some time and the Class 43 units will be used to continue this service.

Following a period of unprofitable operations, the InterCity East Coast franchise and associated HST units passed from NXEC to East Coast, an operator owned by the Department for Transport. From the beginning of East Coast's operations, it was made clear that the Department intended to retender the franchise in future years. Accordingly, East Coast soon adopted a deliberately plain livery that would be easy for a new operator to re-brand. The franchise eventually passed to Virgin Trains East Coast in March 2015.

The British Rail Class 803 AT300 is a new type of electric multiple unit built by Japanese rolling stock manufacturer Hitachi, based upon the Hitachi A-train design. While sharing a bodyshell with the previous UK A-train variants, the Class 803 differs in that it has no diesel engines fitted.The 'Lumo' service commenced on the 25th October 2021 with two trains per day travelling from London to Edinburgh in each direction on normal weekdays, however it is scheduled to be increased to five per day during 2022. It is anticipated that the fastest service will complete the journey in 4 hours 3 minutes, although most will take a little over 4 hours 30 minutes.

The Advanced Passenger Train (APT) programme is remembered by many as one of British Rail's greatest embarrassments, an ambitious but ultimately unsuccessful design. The APT-P multiple units incorporated ideas that were well ahead of their time, most famously including a computerised tilting system which allowed the trains to navigate the tight turns of Britain's ageing railways up to 40% faster than anything else of the time.

Poor service saw the Network SouthCentral franchise transferred from Connex Trains, later renamed Southern in 2000. No serious attempt to update the units to the new Southern brand took place with only 4-VEP unit 3514 ever being painted into Southern green livery.

The introduction of the Class 377 Electrostar units gradually saw the old and high millage 4-VEPs replaced. The final regular Southern 4-VEP service took place in August 2005, while Southern 4-VEP operations came to a final end with the Sussex Slammer rail tour occurring in November.

When Southwestern was handed to South West Trains in 1996, the 4-VEPs they inherited were quickly repainted in a style largely based upon the NSE livery but also featuring an orange strip that combined with the old livery to match the colours of its parent company Stagecoach, and their distinct and common buses.

Towards the end of the 4-VEPs service units were reformed using the best condition carriages to prolong life. Despite this the units only lasted a few months more, finally being taken out of service in May 2005.

While the Class 66s began their service in 1998, No. 66004s unique livery and service reflect a modern preoccupation with promoting environmental awareness.The HS2 owned locomotive is part of an active drive to promote the environmental benefits of delivering construction materials by rail instead of road, which inspired the name 'The Green Progressor'. The intention is that for every locomotive HS2 uses to transport aggregates and construction materials, up to 76 lorries are removed from the UK's roads and motorway network. 'The Green Progressor' is both innovative and a benefit of tradition; in returning focus to our beloved railways we boost efficiency and reduce emissions.

D444 as it was originally known was introduced into service in 1968 and allocated to the Stoke Division, being renumbered 50044 under the TOPS classification system in 1973. In 1974 50044 was relocated to the Bristol Bath Road Shed where it would remain for the remainder of its life. In a nice mathematic and literary coincidence, exactly 50 of the Class 50 locomotives were built and all of them named, 'Exeter' receiving its name in 1978.

The British Rail Class 47 or Brush Type 4 is a class of diesel-electric locomotive that was developed in the 1960s by Brush Traction. A total of 512 Class 47s were built at Brush's Falcon Works in Loughborough and at British Railways' Crewe Works between 1962 and 1968, which made them the most numerous class of British mainline diesel locomotive. They were fitted with the Sulzer 12LDA28C twin-bank twelve-cylinder unit producing 2,750 bhp (2,050 kW) – though this was later derated to 2,580 bhp (1,920 kW) to improve reliability – and have been used on both passenger and freight trains on Britain's railways for over 55 years. Despite the introduction of more modern types of traction, a significant number are still in use, both on the mainline and on heritage railways. As of January 2020, 78 locomotives still exist as Class 47s, with further examples having been converted to other classes; 32 Class 47s have been preserved, and 34 retain "operational status" on the mainline.

The British Rail Class 37 is a diesel-electric locomotive. Also known as the English Electric Type 3, and by some railway enthusiasts as 'tractors' due to their agricultural sound, the class was ordered as part of the British Rail modernisation plan. They were numbered in two series, D6600–D6608 and D6700–D6999. The Class 37 became a familiar sight on many parts of the British Rail network, in particular forming the main motive power for InterCity services in East Anglia and within Scotland. They also performed well on secondary and inter-regional services for many years. The class was designed for both passenger and freight work. Many of the original locomotives were fitted with boilers for steam heating. With the withdrawal of many Type 2 and Type 3 locomotives in the 1980s the 37s were selected as the standard Type 3 and many of the fleet were given a heavy overhaul to prolong their life into the 1990s and beyond. Some were fitted with electrical train heating (ETH) equipment in the 1980s to become the 37/4 sub-class, initially for use on the West Highland Line, the Welsh Marches line and South Wales - Bristol area services and Far North Lines but later seeing use in north/mid Wales and occasionally the West Country. In 2010, they were used on passenger services on the Cumbrian Coast line and Wherry lines. Class 37 locomotives have proved to be very popular, with many examples saved for preservation on heritage railways as well by enthusiast groups. A staple of the Hornby line, who produced the first version of the BR Class 37 in Dublo back in 1965.

By 1974 when the locomotive was re-numbered 40012 under TOPS the locomotive's nameplates had been removed, yet despite this the locomotive's name was painted onto the bodyside before 1985 withdrawal. Reinstated in 1985 to assist with the remodeling of Crewe Station, restricted to a top speed of 35mph, and given the departmental number 97407.
This extension to the service life of number 40012 resulted in the locomotive being purchased for preservation.

British Railways originally ordered ten Class 40s, then known as "English Electric Type 4s", as evaluation prototypes. They were to be used as replacements for steam locomotives, usually hauling passenger services. The prototypes were successful enough to warrant a further 190 production models. It was initially worried that the locomotives lacked the power needed to maintain the speeds required on express services and as a result the capability to run in multiple was considered a main design feature. This resulted in the inclusion of small gangways at each end of the first 145 units. After this point it was realised that multiple running was rare and could be achieved without the gangways. The first 125 units were built with a disk route identification. When unfolded the disks were white with a small hole to allow a light to shine through during the night. When the top half of the disk was folded down the back was painted so as to blend into the locomotive and make it clear the disk was not in use. A few locomotives forwent the disks and simply relied on lights or the more traditional lamps, lamp irons having remained a feature. The disk system was soon abandoned in favour of the more modern headcode system, initially requiring split headcodes to accommodate the gangway doors. Once the gangway doors were abandoned the split headcode boxes were combined in a central position where the gangway doors had previously been. The arrival of more powerful locomotives such as the class 47, 50 and 55 along with the electrification of the WCML made the Class 40s redundant, relegating them to freight duties for which they were not well suited. Withdrawals began in 1976 with the majority of locomotives being withdrawn in the early 1980s. Locomotive D232 was built in 1959 and entered service in September that year. The locomotive was named 'Empress of Canada' in March 1961, named after the vessel operated by Canadian Pacific Steamships. Under the TOPS numbering system, the locomotive became 40032 in late 1973. The locomotive was withdrawn in February 1982 and scrapped at Swindon Locomotive Works.

One of the independent train operators set up after the privatisation of the British rail network Fragonset Railways owned a number of locomotive and coaches for 'spot hire' and charter services.
During the summer months the Bristol to Weymouth Heart of Wessex line often sees an increase in passengers travelling to the seaside and Fragonset locomotive hauled trains operated on this route to provide the additional seating capacity for day-trip passengers. To mark this locomotive 31454 was named Heart of Wessex.

British Rail Class 31 diesel locomotives, also known as the Brush Type 2 and originally as Class 30, were built by Brush Traction from 1957-62. They were numbered in two series, D5500-D5699 and D5800-D5862. Construction of the first locomotive was completed in the final week of September 1957, and the handing-over took place on 31 October. The first Class 31 entered service in November 1957, after the launch of the Class 20 locomotive and was one of the Pilot Scheme locomotives ordered by British Railways to replace steam traction.The Railway Technical Centre (RTC) in London Road, Derby, England, was the technical headquarters of the British Railways Board, and was built in the early 1960s. British Rail described it as the largest railway research complex in the world, and certain Class 31s served in a capacity as locomotives aiding experiements and research.

The Advanced Passenger Train (APT) programme is remembered by many as one of British Rail's greatest embarrassments, an ambitious but ultimately unsuccessful design. The APT-P multiple units incorporated ideas that were well ahead of their time, most famously including a computerised tilting system which allowed the trains to navigate the tight turns of Britain's ageing railways up to 40% faster than anything else of the time.
NB Hornby photo shows that this 7 car set comprises a 5 car set plus second power car and research coach, not a 7-car APT train.

The 88bhp Ruston 88DS is the 'big brother' to the 48DS, designed to be powerful enough to replace a small steam shunting locomotive.
Ruston 441934 was built new for chocolate and confectionery manufacturers Rowntree & Co. Ltd of York, delivered in April 1960 and joining fellow Ruston 88DS locomotives 421419/1958 and 432479/1959 as No. 3. In 1979 a new 0-6-0 locomotive was bought for the York factory and No.3 was transferred to Rowntree’s Fawdon, Newcastle factory until rail service there ended in 1987. No. 3 was passed to the North York Moors Railway for preservation, but in 2013 was quite fittingly acquired by two members of the Derwent Valley Light Railway and has returned to York, being named Ken Cooke in honour of a former Rowntree’s employee, a D-Day veteran and holder of the Legion d’Honneur.
