The Class 143 Diesel Multiple Unit was part of British Rail’s Second Generation DMU fleet. Known as ‘Pacers’, along with the Class 141, 142 and 144s, the Class 143s were introduced by British Rail in the mid-1980s at a time when it was replacing its ageing fleet of first generation DMUs. Operating until 2021, this EFE Rail model depicts unit No. 143603 in GWR Green livery with a pristine finish.
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.
121020 is quite well known as the longest serving example of the class, surviving in Chiltern Railways ownership until 2017 when it was finally withdrawn after nearly 60 years in revenue earning service. Unit 121020 can now be found at the Bodmin and Wenford Railway.

A highly detailed model of the BR Southern region class 73 electro-diesel locomotive finished in South West Trains livery.South West Trains leased this class 73 as a 'Thunderbird' rescue locomotive to attend failed units and get them moved quickly, with diesel power being available if the traction current needed to be discharged. The locomotive is currently leased to SWT successors South Western Railway.
A highly detailed model of the BR Southern region class 73 electro-diesel locomotive finished in the modern era Southern (Govia group) livery.73202 is leased by Southern as a 'Thunderbird' rescue locomotive to attend failed units and get them moved quickly, with diesel power being available if the traction current needed to be discharged.
This Bachmann Branchline model depicts one of the units that operates in Wales and across the English-Welsh border, and the two-car unit is decorated in Arriva Trains Wales livery. The pinnacle of OO scale second generation DMUs, the Branchline Class 158 combines high fidelity bodyshells with an underframe that’s adorned with separate components depicting the engines, electrical equipment, and auxiliary gear. It’s the livery application which really brings these models to life and every element has been replicated in miniature. Whilst the main colours are spray painted, the myriad smaller logos, symbols and lettering are applied using a specialist printing process, using BR and corporate specification fonts, logos and colours.
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.
Model postponed to 2024 programme.67025 entered service with EWS in May of 2000, the locomotive would be painted in the standard EWS colour scheme and would be named 'Western Star' in mid-2001. Passing into DB Schenker ownership from EWS, although never wearing the livery, the locomotive would be leased by DB Cargo to Transport for Wales for operation on their Cardiff to Holyhead services. In TfW colours, the locomotive would not wear its name, although the locomotive is still officially named.The Hornby Class 67 contains a 5 pole motor, dual flywheels and dual bogie drive. An 8 pin DCC socket provides digital compatibility with easy access to a speaker fitment position. The locomotive is also fitted with front and rear lights.
The idea of the managers train, business train or inspection saloon is far from a new one, the first examples being employed by some of the earliest of the pre-grouping railway companies. In the modern era EWS' management train is a version of this rather old fashioned idea. Or much of the modern era, EWS has operated a push-pull managers train and a 'business train'. This business train, despite its name, rarely operated as a single train with sets of coaches often being employed on extra services around the country, an example being on services laid on during major UK based sporting events and such.The business train utilised the then rather old Mk2 coaches in a special EWS maroon livery and would be found being hauled by all manner of EWS liveried traction, such as the Class 37 and, as in this pack, the class 67.
