Diesel Brake Tender

Diesel Brake Tenders were introduced in the early 1960s to provide additional brake force to assist new diesel locomotives in bringing heavy unfitted freight trains to a stop. Key Publishing has commissioned Dapol to produce a ready-to-run 'OO' gauge model of these interesting vehicles with the third batch being released in November 2022 at the Warley National Model Railway Exhibition.
