KMRC adds Royal Scotsman 37 to Scottish roster


Kernow Model Rail Centre (KMRC) has added another exclusive Bachmann ‘OO’ gauge Class 37/4 diesel to its range, finished as 37401 in Royal Scotsman livery (Cat No. 35-335Y/SF/SFX).

Originally named Mary Queen of Scots, 37401 enjoyed a long association with Scotland, especially on locomotive hauled passenger and freight trains on West Highland routes, as well as charter and sleeper trains. In 2001, it was repainted in EWS Royal Claret and named Royal Scotsman, for use on the luxury train of the same name.


KMRC's exclusive ‘OO’ gauge model bears the hallmarks of previous models from Bachmann’s new tooling suite for the Class 37/4 and features five-pole motor, twin flywheels, diecast chassis, PluX22 Digital Command Control (DCC) decoder socket, factory-fitted speaker, directional lighting, high-intensity headlights, marker lights and a raft of prototype specific separately applied detailing.


This latest addition to KMRC’s range of exclusive models joins a selection of Scottish Class 37s commissioned from Bachmann by the retailer including 37012 Loch Rannoch in BR large logo blue (35-301Y/SF/SFX) and 37418 An Comunn Gaidhealach in BR large logo blue (35-335Z/SF/SFX).

Each is available in three formats – DCC ready, DCC sound-fitted and DCC sound-fitted deluxe. The sound-fitted deluxe versions feature independently controlled roof fan and tinted glazing, in addition to onboard digital sound.


Prices for 37401 and 37012 are set at £244.95 DCC ready, £344.95 DCC sound-fitted and £374.95 DCC sound-fitted deluxe. 37418 is priced £239.95, £339.95 and £359.95 respectively.
