Product description

THIS MODEL IS UNPOWERED BUT THEY WILL STILL RETAIN PICKUPS, LIGHTING AND DCC INTERFACE TO ALLOW EASY INSTALLATION OF SOUND

The ETHEL (Electric Train Heating Ex-Locomotives) were three Ex Class 25 locomotives were converted for use as mobile generators to provide electric heating on trains where the main locomotive could not supply. They retained their engine and generators, but had the traction motors removed, they were able to provide heat and lighting, but unable to move independently. Commonly seen on the MK3 coaching stock on the "Caledonian Sleeper" trains and on the West Highland Line heating the stock for locos that were not fitted with ETH.

With the growing proliferation of steam specials on and run by BR brought further use for the ETHELs, with their ability to provide power/heating for rolling stock, as none of the steam locomotives being able to supply such to the coaching stock.
