The Brush Class 31 Type 2 A1A-A1A diesel-electrics were built between 1957 and 1962 with a total of 263 locomotives being completed. They saw service across nearly all points of the British Railway network in their long-career. Examples are still active on the main line today while more than 20 have been preserved. The Class 31 has been a popular choice for ready-to-run models in 'OO' gauge, 'N' gauge and 'O' gauge with products from Lima, Hornby, Airfix, Heljan and Graham Farish.
