Product Information

Product Description

These Locomotives were produced for the 1955 modernisation plan and were used for various jobs around the southern region including parcel and freight trains. As they could reach speeds of up to 80mph they were also used on quite a few passenger services.

The class 73 was designed so that it could run on the southern region’s 650/750v DC third rail or using its own on-board diesel engine which meant it could operate on non-electrified routes. A total number of 49 Class 73’s were built between 1962 and 1967 and most of them can still be seen running up and down the southern region, a few were painted in Network Rail Yellow and used for track testing and maintenance but most of them were preserved on railways such as the Dean Forest Railway.
