Following the arrival of Bachmann's new Class 117 DMUs we were keen to test the models abilities with a sound decoder installed. This video guide with MIKE WILD explains how it is done using a ZIMO MX645P22 decoder.
One of the longest-lived of the first-generation DMUs was the Pressed Steel-built Class 117, intended for the Western Region but later used in many other parts of the country. EVAN GREEN-HUGHES delves into the history of these highly regarded trains.
The SLW Class 24 was highly regarded when it first arrived in 2016 (HM111), but now it has been given a makeover to enhance its details and make its sound file more user friendly. MIKE WILD takes a closer look at the latest additions to the portfolio.
