Product description

History

The British Rail Class 31 diesel locomotives, also known as the Brush Type 2 and originally as Class 30, were built by Brush Traction from 1957-62, numbering 263 locos. The Class 31 entered service in November 1957 and was one of the Pilot Scheme locomotives ordered by British Railways to replace steam traction. The class was originally allocated to the Eastern Region, but gradually became common in both the Western and London Midland regions too.

Class 31/6

Two locomotives received the modification of through-wiring for Electric Train Heating (ETH), meaning they can be coupled to a train behind another locomotive (with full ETH capabilities), and the front locomotive is still able to heat the train.
