In conjunction with our friends at Revolution Trains, we are excited to be working on a newly tooled range of OO gauge locomotives depicting the innovative Clayton CBD80 & CBD90 hybrid battery-diesel shunting locomotives (collectively known as the Class 18).

Our high specification range of models will cover these innovative hybrids in a range of Beacon Rail and Tata Steel colour schemes, depicting usage at a variety of industrial sites. 

We recently had the chance to closely inspect the first decorated samples for the project and we're sure you'll agree that these are shaping up very nicely indeed. Note the different tooling variations between each locomotive and the wealth of separately applied details present, some of which are very small indeed!

The final models are currently expected to arrive between Q4 2024 and Q1 2025.
