Bachmann Baguley-Drewry Update

Posted by Warren Bennett on

Bachmann have provided a long awaited update on the Narrow Gauge range of highly anticipated Baguley-Drewry 70hp Diesels.
These models are newly tooled to feature a multitude of detail packed into their small size. On the front of the locomotive, the models feature a name plate and radiator grille cover, with an air filter mounted on top of the bonnet. The right hand side of the locomotive features a fuel gauge and the cab door.
The cab itself features non-functional headlamps on the front and back, with the windows having black surrounds and wipers. The front of the cab carries an exhaust conditioner on the left hand side, whilst the inside contains moulded chairs and controls. The models also come with an accessory pack, containing alternative buffer beams without the space for the coupling socket.

Beyond the visual details, these models all share the following technical features:

  • NEM Coupling pockets
  • Powerful Coreless Motor
  • Electrical pickup on all wheels
  • Next18 Decoder Socket – recommended decoder item No. 36-567B

More information on both models below.

These can be pre ordered now for £93.45 (RRP £109.95). Pre Order from Rails with FREE UK POSTAGE.

Expected January/February 2024.
