A popular period for modelling Britains' Railways, the steam-diesel transition era allows many of the current generation highly detailed steam and diesel locomotives to be employed together.

The LMS started investigating diesel traction for shunting engines in the 1930s and after WW2 progressed to looking at mainline locomotives. Under the stewardship of CME Henry Ivatt locomotive number 10000 was completed at Derby works in 1947. This locomotive was fitted with an English Electric 16-cylinder SVT engine set at 1600bhp, only just below the 1750bhp rating of the later 12-cylinder engines inside BRs versatile class 37s, which share a remarkable family likeness to this pioneering locomotive.

Bachmann provide a heavy diecast chassis insdie their diesel locomotive models with drive from a centrally mounted motor to both bogies. The bodyshells are accurately reproduced from works drawings, with detail changes made during the life of the locomotives recreated from photographic records.

This model of LMS & BR 10000 is painted in the BR brunswick green locomotive livery with lining in orange and black.

Bachmann Branchline OO 31-366 Class 03 D2016 BR Green

Following several trials with small diesel shunting locomotives BR selected some of the best components for their own design, given TOPS class 03. These locomotives had a 204bhp Gardner engine and mechanical transmission, very similar to the Drewry 04 locomotives. The 03 was the designated standard small diesel shunter, examples being kept in service where required well into the 1980s. Withdrawn locomotives have found further use with industrial users and heritage railways.

This model of the 03 by Bachmann feautres a detailed body, including a clear and detailed cab interior. The mechanism has been designed to run smoothly at slow shunting speeds and extra weight has been incorporated by making the footplate in metal.

Dapol OO Gauge 4D-012-004 BR D6325 Class 22 North British Type 2 Diesel Hydraulic BR Green with Headcode Discs.

The BR Class 22 is a type of B-B diesel locomotive designed for the Western Region of BR and built by NBL. The class has been nicknamed the Baby Warship due to their similarity to the D600 Warship locomotive. Fifty seven locomotives were built between 1959 and 1962 and operated in the West of England hauling both passengers and freight. The class was eventually displaced by the more powerful and reliable Hymeks and Warships, exacerbated by the bankruptcy of NBL in 1962 and the consequential lack of spares. By 1971 all had been decommissioned and none survived into preservation. Dapol’s OO model was produced after years of extensive study of plans and drawings and by collaborative work with various locomotive experts.

Bachmann Branchline OO Gauge 32-440 BR D5135 Class 24/1 Bo-Bo Diesel Locomotive Model BR Plain Green
New model announced 2013.

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 variat of the popular and useful Derby type 2.

Bachmanns 24 and 25 models have a heavy diecast chassis and central motor drive to both bogies, with flywheels to maintain smooth running.
D5135 is painted in the original all-over green livery with late crest.

Hornby RailRoad OO Gauge R3592TTS BR A1A-A1A D5551 Class 31 - BR Two Tone Green with TTS Sound

The Class 31 diesel electric locomotive was developed as a result of the British Transport Commission’s 1955 Modernisation Plan, which proposed replacing all steam locomotives with diesel, powered units over a 10 year period.  Locomotive manufacturers were invited to produce pilot designs, which could trialled with the hope that this would lead to fleet size orders.

Designed and built by the Loughborough based Brush Traction, the early examples were delivered to London’s Stratford depot for use on the former Great Eastern lines with the prototype D5500, the first of a batch of twenty being delivered in October 1957. The whole of the pilot batch of Class 31s entered traffic during the years of 1957 to 1959 with the vast majority going to the East Anglian Sheds.

The British Transport Commission were so impressed that orders were placed allowing for the Class to go into full production with orders amounting for a total of 263 with the full production being completed by 1962. The Class 31 locomotives were fitted with a standard electro-pneumatic control associated with the Blue Star multiple working system. Between 1965 and 1969 the entire Class was re-engined with English Electric power units, which was after serious problems were experienced with the original Mirrlees power units.  The first of the Class to be re-engined was D5677, a locomotive that was later re-numbered under the TOPS classification system as 31249, with the last locomotive receiving a new engine being D5500, which is now part of the National Collection.

As the Class numbers grew so their field of operation increased and they soon could found working on the majority of the BR network heading up both passenger and freight trains.

Between the years of 1973 and 1985, sixty eight of the Class were fitted with electric train heating and all ‘31s’ that were still in traffic in 1988 were fitted with dual train brakes, both air and vacuum.  From 1983 a life extension programme was undertaken involving the removal of the body side bands and skirts together with redundant steam heating equipment.  Any of the Class that was not included in this programme of changes was listed for early withdrawal, however the last of these designated locomotives continued in service until 1994.

Bachmann Branchline 31-679 Type AL5 Electric E3095 BR Electric Blue Small Yellow Panel

One of the early designs of 25kV electric locomotives for the West Coast mainline electrification the AL5 type was built by BR works at Doncaster. Later calssified 85 under the TOPS system these were robust and reliable locomotives which had long service lives. Surviving the initial purge of less satisfactory types when the 'second generation' class 87s were built class 85s could still be found in charge of West Coast expresses until the late 1980s.
One of the classic British electric locomotives the 85 will be at home alongside the class 86, 87 and 90 locomotives available from Hornby and Heljan. Hopefully a model of the equally long-lived English Electric AL1/class 81 will follow and maybe the less successful 82, 83 and 84 classes to complete the fleet.

Please note these models have been delivered as single pantograph locomotives, not twin pans as shown in the Bachmann catalogue photographs.

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.

Built between 1959 and 1961 at Pressed Steels' Linwood Works in Scotland the class 117 DMUs were initially allocated to British Railways Western Region. The units were formed of Driving Motor Brake Second (DMBS), Trailer Composite with Lavatory (TCL) and a Driving Motor Second (DMS) cars with 42 each of the DMBS and DMS motor cars built along with 39 trailers, allowing a float of motor cars for maintenance. Used predominantly as 3-car units, initial workings were on suburban services out of London Paddington and in Cornwall. When additional capacity was required the units coupld be coupled together and coupled to other types of unit using the BR standard Blue Square multiple unit control system, with all power units under control of the driver in the leading cab. The Blue Square system was fitted to the class 101 and 108 units also produced by Bachmann.
After many years of service on the Western Region the class 117 units were included in the refurbishment programme which saw most of the fleet upgraded between 1974 and 1984. A number of refurbished unit moved away from the Western region to replace older designs in other parts of the country. Some units travelling as far as Scotland. Following the sectorisation or British Rail operations the reamining London based units were allocated to the Network South East buiness sector until displaced by the new 'Networker Turbo' class 165/6 DMUs. Units still in gereally good condition were reallocated to the Provincial Services business, later named Regional Railways.
The first units were retired in 1995 and many later withdrawn units were purchased for heritage railways.

This set is painted in the original British Railways DMU green livery with the stylish speed whisker lines.

We are taking pre-orders for this new DMU unit from Bachmann. Please use the 'Click and Collect' payment option from the drop-down menu of the payments screen, we will contact you to advise our sell price and arrange payment when the trains are due to be released.

Derived from the Pressed Steel class 117 units the single car class 121 unit was a Driving Motor Brake Second (DMBS) car with a second driving cab at what would otherwise be the inner or luggage van end. 16 cars were built, primarily for the Western region, operating a number of branch lines along the Thames valley, in the Bristol area and throughout Devon and Cornwall. A number of single-cab trailer cars were also built, using the same bodyshell as the class 117 DMS, which allowed the train capacity to be increased when needed. The class 121 units featured the standard BR Blue Square multiple control system, so class 121 cars could be added to other DMU trains. A DMBS could be used as a stand in for a motor car on a three-car set and in later years the trailers were often paired with motor cars from other DMU classes to make 2-car units.
The class 121 units were put through the refurbishment programme in the early 1980s, receiving new interiors and flourescent lighting along with the brighter blue and grey livery. Cars operating in the London and Thames Valley areas joined Network South East on sectorisation, while withdrawn cars were often put to new uses for driver training and route learning, video infrastructure surveying and Sandite spraying (Sandite is an adhesion-improving substance). Two units are still in service with Chiltern Railways, one with Network rail and eight have been preserved.

This car is painted in the original British Railways DMU green livery with the stylish speed whisker lines.

Heljan OO BR SC79970 Park Royal 4-wheel Railbus Car Green with Speed Whiskers 8750
British Railways experimented with 4-wheeled railbus cars from a number of builders in the late 1950s. The German railways had achieved great success with these lightweight, fuel efficient railcars, providing efficient passenger service on remote branch lines with a minimum crew. The single car required a driver and guard, who could also act as conductor, collecting fares. This allowed station staffing to be reduced, trying to bring the costs back in line with the takings.

This model replicates the railbus design supplied by the Park Royal company which had previously been invovled with the development of the GWR railcars and later built DMUs.

Heljan have designed the drive mechanism for the railbus very carefully, with the chassis and motor fitting below the window line, allowing the interior to be modelled and passenger figures to be added if required. The model is supplied with bufferbeam details pre-instaled.

Bachmann Branchline OO Gauge 32-027B BR D8011 EE Type 1 Class 20 Bo-Bo Diesel Locomotive BR Green Small Warning Panels Disc Headcode.

British Railways proposed to test diesel locomotives through a 'pilot scheme' of locomotives specified to perform similarly to steam engines. The 'type 1' specification called for a locomotive up to 1000bhp intended to replace 0-6-0 types in local goods service. The end-cabbed English Electric response used an 8 cylinder version of the well developed and reliable SVT engine and was by far the most successful type 1 design.

This Bachmann model features a detailed bodyshell finished in the British Railways green livery, which some of the class 20s carried until 1980 with the steam-era headcode discs carried by these early diesel locomotives. The model is driven by a centrally mounted motor and flywheel set powering all four axles via driveshafts, with smooth running and excellent hauling capabilities.

Dapol OO Gauge 4D-012-007 BR D6321 Class 22 North British Type 2 Diesel Hydraulic Split Headcode Boxes BR Green Small Yellow Warning Panels Serif Font Lettering


The BR Class 22 is a type of B-B diesel locomotive designed for the Western Region of BR and built by NBL. The class has been nicknamed the Baby Warship due to their similarity to the D600 Warship locomotive. Fifty seven locomotives were built between 1959 and 1962 and operated in the West of England hauling both passengers and freight. The class was eventually displaced by the more powerful and reliable Hymeks and Warships, exacerbated by the bankruptcy of NBL in 1962 and the consequential lack of spares. By 1971 all had been decommissioned and none survived into preservation. Dapol’s OO model was produced after years of extensive study of plans and drawings and by collaborative work with various locomotive experts.
