Kernow 1960s period Bulleid diesel

Kernow releases 1960s period Bulleid diesel

The third of Kernow’s Bulleid diesels models 10203 which has a number of differences to the first of these 1Co-Co-1s. MARK CHIVERS takes a closer look.

Kernow Model Rail Centre (KMRC) released the highly anticipated follow up to its models of Bulleid 1-Co-Co-1 diesels 10201-10202 in 2018 with the later 1960s period BR lined green decorated 10203. Like 10201-10202, this version is currently out of stock with Kernow, with the previous production runs having sold through. Nevertheless, it is such a significant model that we want to bring it back to the limelight here.

Built at Brighton Works in 1954, 10203 differed slightly from its Ashford-built classmates (10201/10202) by having a more powerful 2,000hp English Electric engine and a series of refinements internally and externally which included revised exhaust ports and bodyside grille arrangements.
