In 1972 the prototype High Speed Train (HST) arrived following construction at Crewe and Derby works. Now Dapol has released its sought-after all-new ‘N’ gauge model of this historic doyen of high speed rail travel in the UK.
The chance of an ‘N’ gauge Class 17 seemed to have passed, but through Bachmann’s new brand EFE Rail and Kernow Model Rail Centre, this once ill-fated model has been revived and brought to completion. MIKE WILD takes a closer look.
NEW to the Branchline ‘OO’ and Graham Farish gauge ranges are all-new models of the HKA high capacity hopper wagons which were originally built for National Power as JMAs which were originally built in 1995.
NOW AVAILABLE FROM Realtrack Models is its first own-brand ready-to-run ‘N’ gauge wagon in the form of the long-lived PCA bulk cement wagons, following hard on the heels of the KQA/KTA pocket wagons from sister company C=Rail Intermodal.
For fans of intermodal trains over the past 30 years, ‘N’ gauge now offers plethora of opportunities to model these lengthy workings with the majority of required wagon types either available or on the way.
