The overhauled Class 45 ‘Peaks’ have been a missing component from the modern era ‘OO’ gauge catalogues, but Bachmann is setting that right with the arrival of its Regional Exclusive versions of the Class 45/0 with ‘sealed beam’ headlights. MIKE WILD takes a closer look at this new arrival from Bachmann which has been much requested.
The Class 92 holds a special place in British railway history, as one of these dual voltage electrics hauled the last BR operated service before the start of privatisation in November 1997. Now the class has been immortalised in ‘N’ gauge by Revolution Trains. Could it be the best ready-to-run model for ‘N’ gauge yet? MIKE WILD finds out.
Oxford's rail scene has undergone significant transformation in recent years with the introduction of a new route to London Marylebone together with new Intercity Express Trains on London Paddington services as well as infrastructure and signal upgrades.
