Bachmann shows 'OO'
Class 20/3 in colour
Bachmann has revealed factory decorated samples of its eagerly awaited all-new 'OO' gauge Class 20/3 models covering DRS and Harry Needle Railroad Company colour schemes.
The Class 20/3s have been designed from the ground up to offer a brand-new tooling suite for these refurbished locomotives. Features include separate pipework on the bogies, picked out in white, metal sandpipes, the makers name on the axleboxes, direcitonal lighting optional full bufferbeam detail, NEM coupling pockets and turned metal wheels. There are also sprung buffers and etched metal steps.
Power is provided by a centrally mounted motor providing drive to both bogies while lighting can be switched between day and night modes. Like the recent Class 117, 121 and 159, the Class 20/3s feature a PluX22 decoder socket and a speaker is pre-fitted into each locomotive to simplify sound installation.
Models planned for release cover 20306 in original DRS blue (Cat No. 35-125), 20311 in Harry Needle Railroad Company orange and black (35-126) and 20312 in DRS Compass (original) colours (35-127). Prices are set at £164.95 per locomotive with release currently anticipated in December 2020.
