‘O’ gauge diesels don’t get much smaller than this! It’s time to welcome our new 1:43.5 scale starter locomotive – the classic Ruston & Hornsby 48DS industrial shunter.

Designed from scratch using original research and drawings provided by Ruston 48DS owners and experts, this superb new entry-level model is a ‘must have’ for modellers of the industrial scene but will also be suitable for BR era main line layouts and preservation sites, where many of the survivors now reside.
