Product Description

Expected Delivery Jul/Aug 2024 (Subject to Change at Manufacturer's Discretion).

The Class 350 was the first modern Electric Multiple Unit to be produced in N Scale by Graham Farish, and now this stunning model returns to the range in today’s London Northwestern Railway livery depicting Class 350/3 No. 350372.

The Class 350 wears the London Northwestern Railway livery – with its contrasting shades of grey and green – so very well, and this attractive scheme has been scaled down and applied to the N scale model using Graham Farish’s usual attention to detail. The model is equipped with a powerful drive mechanism which incorporates a flywheel for smooth operation and is fitted with 6-pin decoder sockets making it easy to equip the model for use on DCC.

CLASS 350 HISTORY

The British Rail Class 350 electric multiple units are part of the “Desiro UK” family of passenger trains and were built by Siemens in 2004–05, 2008–09 and 2013–14. Thirty of these trains, designated Class 350/1, were built for use by Central Trains and Silverlink on regional express services and services on the southern section of the West Coast Main Line.

A further 37 Class 350/2 units were ordered by then-operator London Midland in late 2007. All 37 units were delivered and in service by July 2009. A further 20 units have since been built, split equally between London Midland (subsequently London Northwestern Railway – LNR) and TransPennine Express. The LNR units are designated as Class 350/3s, and the TransPennine Express units designated 350/4.

The Class 350 series consists of 4-car units, with earlier variations in DMCO(A)+TCO+PTSO+DMCO(B) formation and later variations in DMOS(A)-TOCL-PTOSLW-DMOS(B) formation. All are currently working on routes operated by London Northwestern Railway or its sister brand, West Midlands Railway.

The Siemens "Desiro UK" family also includes units of Classes 185, 450, 360, 380 and 444. With over 80 units, the Class 350 has the second largest number of units in the family.
