Here at Rails we have six versions available in various liveries including South East Chatham, Southern, BR Early Crest. These models show the progression of the D Class locomotives produced over a wide timescale from their introduction in 1901 through to withdrawal of the last locomotive by British Railways in 1956.
The preserved example (No.737), which is currently on display at the National Railway Museum, York has been produced exclusively for Locomotion Models.
All versions have a NEXT 18 decoder socket fitted which can be accessed by removing the smokebox door to fit the decoder. Information relating to DCC FITTED and DCC SOUND options will be released in due course.
The tooling suite encompasses alternative options depending on which locomotive is modelled.
Other options including a plug-in panel which fits into the NEM coupling pocket. This is in the accessory pack, for those who do not want to fit a front coupling, along with the cab doors. The coal load for the tender is removable to reveal a fully detailed tender interior.
